I am applying in this upcoming cycle and my school has us do a mock up application to our pre med board coming up soon. As of right now my top choice is USUHS, but I am also applying to civilian medical schools and the HPSP. I watched a lot of my friends apply to military academies and having grown up in the military I know its a lot about who you know. I am starting to talk to people preemptively about letters of recommendations, and I have quite a few people in or were in military medicine, including a USUHS graduate that is a family friend, a surgeon currently serving active duty that I shadowed under, a retired medical administrator in the army that is a family friend and a scout leader when I was in BSA, and lastly a retired medical recruiter for the air force. Who should I be looking to get a letter of recommendation from? And should I be looking to send more letters of recommendation from people related to or in military medicine in my USUHS application only?
