    I know this has been discussed before, but I am looking for current info and hopefully some regulatory authority to back it up.

    I have over eight years of active commissioned service. I do not have any service obligations. What I want is a medical student slot in the Army Reserve or ARNG without any bonus/stipend/etc. and, therefore, without any obligation.

    I was recently told by a reserve component AMEDD recruiter that it is simply not possible to get a medical student slot in the Army Reserves without taking MDSSP. Is that correct?

    If it is not correct, how can I educate this recruiter?

    If it is correct, can I do what I'm trying to do in the ARNG?

    I appreciate the help.

    You certainly can in the guard, I cannot imagine reserves is different

    Med student slots aren’t a competitive thing. Tell the recruiter to fill out the packet

    Okay, I'll try. Otherwise I'll just do it in the ARNG.

    Anyone else have any luck doing this in the Army Reserve?
