A bit of a strange question, I know. On one of DS's medical school applications it asks how many hours have you worked each year during the school year. He does not have a part-time job during the academic year, but ROTC is a significant time commitment, and he does receive his scholarship and stipend, and is considered in the reserves. (His school also does not give any course credit for ROTC courses). How should he answer the question--only allowed to enter the number of hours each school year (no opportunity for explanation). Should he enter "0" or should he enter a number of hours for his ROTC time? If yes, how many hours a week? I hope someone can shed light on this unusual question. If not he will go with the safe answer of zero hours work and hopefully get a chance to elaborate if he gets an interview.
