    Hello,

    I am a pre-Med student who is interested in applying for HPSP this year. I read through the forums to learn about this opportunity, yet would also like to speak with a few HPSP students/docs though a call or Skype to hear about their own personal experiences. If you would like to share your experiences with me, please let me know. I would truly appreciate your time!

    Are you a superstar? If so, probably a bad idea.
    Do you want to be in the military, and understand that it may be a sacrifice and delay your long term plans? Is the scholarship a bonus for you? Probably a good idea.

    Objectively, every premed who earns an admission is a superstar. Half of those superstars finish in the bottom half of their med school classes though ...

    Some people are superstars, some people think they’re superstars, and everyone’s mommy thinks they’re a superstar.
    You have to objectively evaluate yourself. Of course some people excel in their bubble and get dramatically slammed to the back of the line when medical school begins. I do wonder if they secretly knew that was coming.
