    Hello Peeps,

    I was just pondering this the other day. If someone is at officer
    training for USUHS, and lets say they get accepted to their top
    choice school aside from USUHS, do you just simply leave?
    People said that as long as the Army doesn't start paying for
    your education, you can always leave.

    In other words, the officer training for the Army pays you what,
    $4-5K?? So lets say you get accepted somewhere else in the
    middle of training, you can always say, ahh its ok.. I wont even
    take a penny for officer training, (but you would complete it I assume)
    and then just notify them after??

    Who knows about this??

    There is a time period(dont remember what it is but 90days is in my head) where you can get out. I had a friend start OIS(Navy) with me only to get accepted at hopkins three weeks into it. He was disenrolled from USUHS gone in about a week. He subsequently never took an hpsp scholarship either. You would have to research this to get the support but I know its possible.

    I saw another med student do this in the first week of Air Force officer training. I wish I had known enough then to get out.

    I was told by the USUHS people that you owe time (for the Army) the minute you start to travel to OBC (get on a plane to Texas, get in your car and start to drive...). I never asked about the wait list thing, though.

    If you're at OBC you better pretty much accept your in and make the most of it. It makes you really wonder why the army runs OBC so early in the summer when people are scrambling into various schools......
