I have been offered a 2 yr HPSP scholarship. My question is, when does the Army start paying for tuition? My M3 year starts June 28th with summer tuition charges and such. My recruiter thought I had the summer off and so he assumed it would start when I came back to school but now doesn't know.
Anyone have any insight?

You might want to get your student finance department in touch with the military and have them figure it out. You do realize that by taking a 2 year HPSP scholarship you are going to owe more time than the scholarship is worth???

not necessarily...you can forgoe doing a residency and do a 2 year GMO and get out...plus you get 2 MASP bonuses of $15,000 for each year of your GMO, and depending upon where you go overseas it could add up to a pretty substantial increase in pay each month :thumbup:

Can you still request a GMO in the Army? I guess they can't make you do anything you don't want to do, so it's still the last resort pathway... That's still 3 years though, because you still have to do one year of internship that doesn't count towards payback. Granted however that it pays better than it would in the civilian world.
