When in an interview and asked where do you see yourself in 10-15 years or how to you plan on financing your medical education, how do medical schools, especially DO schools, feel if you state you plan on joining the medical corps in one of the service branches? Do admission committees/interviewers begin to see you as not a viable student for their school since you will definitely not be practicing in their communities upon graduation? I know that many DO schools state in their mission statements and objectives that they want to fill the physician shortage in their area. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
