I just spoke with a USPI recruiter in my area today and he said that you need 1 year of full-time work experience within the previous two years from the date of application to be considered. This disappointed me because I have spent the last three years in law school and haven't been able to work full-time within the last two years which means I have to wait another year before I apply, missing what seems to be a rare hiring phase. I'm sure everyone else does not have this full-time work requirement problem but what I was wondering is if this was an ironclad requirement for application or if there was a little leeway. Can anyone help?

If you'll notice, the publication date of that document is October 1999, well before the recent overhaul of the Inspection Service's recruitment standards. The one year experience requirement stands. I sure hate to see it impede someone who has dedicated the last three years of their life to that gut-wrenching endeavor that is law school.

You might want to call another recruiter and get a second opinion. Did s/he say that the requirements changed recently? The requirement for attys was just membership in any state bar. It may have changed in the last 6 months though, call and make sure. The ink was not even dry on my bar results when I initially applied, I was fresh out of law school.

I thought about asking another recruiter, maybe out of state but it probably won't change. What bothers me is that I have to waste an entire year of whatever work just so I can apply, and then I have to go through the 6-8 months of the application process, and I'm not getting any younger. In order to enter through the law program one would have to work full-time during law school in order to meet the requirements of full-time work within the last two years prior to application and that's impossible. So what they're saying is that you can't apply after school but instead must wait an entire year. That doesn't make sense to me.
