this topic has be done in the past few weeks i think. try a search, the acronym you want is "HPSP" :)

my advisor, air force captain, says the rank of competitiveness (and desirability) goes from least to greatest navy->army->air force. navy apparently always has lots of open spots cause people are deterred by maybe having to break up their residency by spending a year at sea, and they have pulled docs/residents/med students out if they need "warm bodies" during wartime. divorce rates and other family problems are also highest in the navy. air force is supposedly very lax (trust me, he's not a soldier looking type). but there's more out there on this

When you're 22, 4 extra years is a long time. People go to residency after their 4 years of military service after med school, right? So that's being delayed 4 years too?...
