    Hey,

    When I was younger (7-10 years old) I would get seasonal asthma during the spring when pollen is EVERYWHERE. I know that in order to pass the medical exam you can get failed for having asthma. I was wondering if anyone thinks that because of my past asthma (that I have now grown out of) if I would fail the medical exam and wouldn't be able to get in.

    I've been in cross country, swimming, basketball, etc. and it hasn't given me a problem. So what do you think?

    As a general rule, no symptoms or treatment prescribed after age 13 isn't a problem. However, no case is alike and you should consult Larry Mullen for guidance for your specific situation.
