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!
