Hi, I was on a med school forum just a while ago and saw some things which pointed to ROTC being a bad idea if u want to go to med school. They were talking about how ROTC is very time consuming and does not help you nearly as much as other shadowing, volunteering, and club involvements can. My goal is to serve my country, but I have a passion for medicine as well. I want to do the HPSP scholarship for med school and then have a career as a physician / surgeon in the armed forces, but I am thinking that ROTC for undergrad is not the best decision as its main goal is to produce line officers etc. I mentioned armed forces because I am not set on joining Army/Navy/AF since I want to join the branch which would be easiest to transition to med school with. Is there anyone who can provide some insight on this? Anyone who has done this before?
