@donricardo , @HMtoPA, @LT_Oneal_PAC and all.
I have this same question for a different branch - Ariforce and Army. Does the same rule apply with previous master's degree not helping you commission as an O3? Also could it be a case where the previous master's degree is not much needed in the military branch?
I have a degree in public health can I see that there are Public health Officers position and I will also be starting PA school in the fall this year.
My other question is, is it best to join the military as I start my PA school or it doesn't make any difference if I decide to join 1 year into the program. I have read that joining when one is about 6 months to graduation can prevent on from commissioning right after school and may require one to get civilian PA experience for up to 6 months to 1 year?
How true is this?
