    Started this thread for those applying to Vet School/HPSP this upcoming cycle. All questions welcome about application process or army questions. Good luck!

    Thank you for starting the thread.
    My questions are

    1: If I am not accepted to the HSPS can I still join the army? And will they reimburse my schooling?
    2: If that were the case, do I apply for an army position in my first/second year (same as I would do for HSPS) or when I finish vet school?
    3: I'll be 33 by the time I graduate. How much of a factor does age play in getting accepted? I understand the cut off for joining is 35.
    4: For future students, would acceptance chances increase if prior work with the army were a factor? If so, any recommendations?
    5: I assume the HSPS is a nationwide pot, estimatimation of applications versus acceptance?
    6: My uncle is a Major (my reference letter) I have a 3.7 GPA, I've done a lot of overseas humanitarian work, I'm very physically fit, and have a bachelors in Animal Science. What can I do to make myself more competitive? Is there any summer or one-year program, or perhaps volunteer work? What are your recommendations?

    Thank you for your time and answering these questions.
