    Is having asthma an automatic DQ for admission? Or can I get a waiver or note?

    Actually, it's more than that.....candidates need letters of recommendation from their math, English, and chemistry or physics teachers.

    Yes I know that, just got accepted to USMA last month. At an admissions briefing I attended they strongly recommended taking both chemistry and physics.

    Asthma is an automatic DQ, and only waiver able if you can prove you do not have it. Don't take yourself out of the admissions process though. Realize that it will be difficult to get in, but you are better to go through the process and have them tell you no than to give up. A lot of times, childhood asthma goes away as you get older, or you really only have an overprotective parent/doctor that didn't run the real tests to make the diagnosis but wanted to give the medicine just to be safe.
