I received my acceptances yesterday, and now I'm considering the HPSP to help fund an out-of-state education. I have family ties to the Air Force, but I understand it's competitive with most of the slots being already taken (is that accurate?), which may mean looking at another branch. Anyway, my question is whether or not I should consult a local recruiter in my state, or talk to a recruiter near the dental school? As I understand it, there are forms to be filled out in addition to a military physical. I can see where distance could be a negative factor, but using a recruiter familiar with the school could be a plus. Does anybody have any experience with this kind of situation?
