"That the rotations are at bases all over the US. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very organized day. The USU campus is a LONG walk from the entrance gate. THe morning starts with about 3 hours of presentations from deans and other administrative people, which are informative, but super boring (especially the dean of students). After that there is a tour, which is cool. My guide was an C-17 pilot in the AF for 9 years before he decided to go to med school, and one of the other guys in my tour group is a Navy F-18 pilot looking to do the same. The buildings are kinda old. STRONG sense of community within the student body. Interviews are pretty chill, I interviewed with an Army Captain and a 4th-year student (AF 2nd Lieutenant). Be sure to take the shuttle back to the metro, youll be tired from all the walking." Report Response
