Hope someone can give me some feedback on this. I'm an M1 with an ROTC obligation I'm fulfilling through the national guard while in medical school. I commission this October (it was delayed due to a situation with my medical waiver but it was resolved) and the recruiter I've been working with says they'll schedule me for Medical OBC then and that I have some leeway to decide when to do it ( he said it has to be done within 24 months of commissioning). My question is: When is the best time to go? This summer after M1 year seems good, but it would also limit me from doing summer research or other programs. Is there any time later in med school to do it or is it best to just go through with it early?
