Thanks again for your answers Ophtho_MudPhud. One more question to whom ever would know the answer: What is the likelihood of the Army allowing a "delay of service" in order to complete a fellowship?
I am just starting a GS residency and would like to apply for the FAP but I have concerns that the Army will not allow me to complete a fellowship. The recruiter says it is quite common -- I have been forwarned not to blindly trust everything they say. He also told me that the FAP program will not exist as of 2004.
thanks once again Ophtho_MudPhud. Unfortunately, just as I was gathering information to apply, the recruiter informed me that the FAP (army) was closed for the year and that it is unlikely that it will exist next year.
I am still looking into the AF but am unsure if the same deal applies. Thank you for your advice-steeped previous posts.
