    I just received an appointment to USMA last week but my parents want to take me to the dermatologist where they told me I will most likely be given acutane. I was wondering if taking acutane would disqualify my appointment to USMA. I would be off of the medication before R-day. Any information would help.

    I would definitely e-mail Larry Mullen at DoDMERB first. I think for the AF Academy a cadet has to be off accutane for 6 mo. before reporting in June--USMA could be different. But check with Mr. Mullen--he'll let you know for sure.
