I also began at Platt in January 2016. I decided to apply last minute, so I did not have much time to study for the TEAS as the application deadline was quickly approaching, but luckily I scored well. I applied with absolutely no healthcare experience, and I believe my essay is what set me apart, so I would spend a lot of time perfecting that. I did transfer in nearly all of my prerequisite classes, but I would definitely include your military experience in your essay.
For the most part, the clinical locations are decent. They include the major Denver hospitals are I have enjoyed all of my clinical rotations so far.
For those applying I would say don't try too hard. Be yourself in the interview, show who you are in your essay, and score well on the TEAS. I would definitely recommend spending a majority of your time on the essay.
