Anyone applying to USUHS this cycle? USUHS was my top choice of the few allo schools that I applied to. I'm sitting on the secondary right now because i'm having doubts about doing the required 7 years of active duty once you're done with your residency, which is what you give back for not paying med school tuition. The 7 years is not including your residency so it's quite a bit of time. I'm 25 years old and I eventually want to start a family but I don't want to subject them to a life of a military personnel. I would love to travel the world but i'm worried about being station in some far off country. Don't get me wrong about the military because I think people in the armed services are making such a sacrifice. I just don't know if I could do it plus have a family. I'm worried about the impact of my family. Anyone in the same situation or has gone through this or grew up in a military family.
