But once you are in dental school you will get quite a few free lunches out of the military. If you stick out the talk you might even get a keychain.

In order to receive federal financial aid, universities must allow the military to try and recruit from the student body. Once the school has your application, they may have been required to give the infromation over to the military. I don't know if this is the case, but I was inundated with recruitment paperwork from the Navy once was accepted. I guess that is how they got our infromation. The military is not for me, but they may be a good option if finances are big concern. I can almost guarantee that they will be holding free "Lunch and Learn" sessions once you get to school, it is a good idea to at least listen to what they have to say.
