What impressed you negatively?

"That you will owe 7 years for your time there. I'm in ROTC and already owe 4 years. Also, the emphasis on having a career in military medicine. I'm really excited about being a doctor in the military, but I'm not sure if I want to stay in for that long." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My first interviewer started off by telling me had done over 150 med school interviews. As our interview progressed, he would kind of put answers into my mouth even though I was still talking, responding to his questions. He seemed a little abrasive, and I don't think I did very well with him. My second interviewer was an Army doctor at Walter Reed, who basically told me all about his career, how it's been great for me, and then we just had a relaxed conversation about what it is like to be a doctor in the military."
