Hey everyone with a military background. I have concrete proof that being in or having a military background is GOOD for your application. Today I got accepted to my #1 choice(LSU-New Orleans). I got a low MCAT score(24) but my experience made up for it I imagine.My GPA is a 3.75 overall.

STICK TO IT...you can do it too!

In 10 yrs total( 7 navy as corpsman, w/ marines Desert Shield/STorm, and respiratory therapist including deployment w/ surg team for Bosnia in 95'-96') 3 yrs Louisiana Army National guard deployed to Kandahar,Afghanistan post 9/11.....got out in Apr to concentrate on applying( didn't want anyone to have a strings over my head that would mess up applying because I already missed a year os school by going to Afghaniland.)

My three interviewers were impressed w/ military/medical background and deployments.
