How much does SMART/DOD interfere with your daily life aside of the summer internships (as in during the school year)?

It barely interferes in negative ways. Basically you need to send you transcript twice a year, file a short annual report every summer, and send a short form requesting your internship. On the positive side it interferes by giving me extra time not looking for internships/future jobs, and once a month I get a payday for doing school work I would have done anyway.

The most cumbersome thing you do is fill out the paperwork for your background check. The rest is just as the previous poster said. I was really apprehensive about accepting this scholarship based on things I had read on this forum, but now I believe that those with bad experiences are the minority and the only ones who felt compelled to post. I for one have had a great experience with SMART. I'm currently enjoying my internship. It is true that you may end up doing things in your internship that is unrelated to your field, but it goes you the opportunity to learn more, and you can always leave once your service is up. But there's is nothing that can beat this scholarship! All of my classmates have to work full time or multiple jobs while studying and looking for internships. They're all worried about finding a job when they graduate. Grad school is already stressful enough without having to worry about all those things. SMART eliminates all of that for me
