Okay, so I have recently been contemplating joining the U.S. Army after I graduate college as an officer. I, personally, want more life experience and serving my country would be perfect for that before I apply to medical school. I would just like to serve the minimum amount of years (I thought it was 2 but I recently just heard 3 years was the new minimum). I'd probably do MP (mainly because women can't do infantry but that's a different discussion) After that, I would just apply to med school as a civilian and continue with life. My question is, are there any huge drawbacks to this plan? If anyone that has done this could chime in that would be most appreciated.
