Medical and Dental School Stipend Program

Asked 1 year ago by Guest (120 points)

A United States Army recruiter came to my school talking abiut the stipend program for us students. Students participating in the MDSSP program receive a current stipend of $2,200 per month. After graduation we will be recomissioned as Captains in the Army Reserve Dental Corps.  Here is the catch. Military obligation is served in the Army Reserve after completion of dental school. "Participation incurs a one year obligation in the army reserve for every 6 months that the stipemd is received. Once in yiur reserve unit, you are eligible for an annual bonus of $25,000 and a student loan repayment of $250,000.

So if i take the stipend $2,200 every month for four years I am obligated to work one weekend a month for 8 years under the reserve and will be repayed $250,000 in loans.

Has anyone ever done this and can confirm that i will be eligible for the $250,000 loan repayment because some student told me becareful they can trick you if your job title is not on a certain list, you don't get and loan repayment. The recruiter will say yes I do get the money just so they can get me under contract even if i dont get the money. Can anyone confirm that I will get repayed.

I'm sure that the recruiters you talked to have contacts with people currently in the program and those who completed it.  Ask them for help on your question.
