    Is this something you can do? just to clarify what i'm saying....if you go on an HPSP..and do well enough to say..get into a 2 yr ortho program....can you NOT have the military pay for it, finance it yourself and still only owe four yrs in the military as a specialist? Or if ur on the HPSP, get into a specialty program...the military automatically pays for it and you owe even more time in payback years (6 in the case of ortho)? does this make sense?

    Yes to the first.

    No to the second.

    Read the thread "specializing in the military" located farther down in military dentistry.
