I realize that oral maxillofacial surgery is very competitive. I wondered, though, do you feel it is more competitive to get into in the military or out of the military?

I think it's easier in. I gave my reasons why in the Army questions under your initial post.

i just read that he was already a physician. as long as he has decent board scores, i would think it would be fairly easy for him to get in either way!
