    I had suffered a major Concussion that kept me out of school for 2 months. I am fully recovered now and the only thing that suffered were my grades. Is this a red flag if I am now okay?

    I was told to ask on this thread over on the Naval Academy thread.

    I am sure it will involve a remedial, which means you'll need all of your medical records so you should start gathering them now. Whether it will involve a DQ is beyond my knowledge. If the doctors say you're fully recovered and there are no lingering issues, your chances obviously are better.

    If you have been offered an appointment to the Naval Academy, you HAVE to disclose the major concussion to DoDMERB. As USNA1985 said, it will probably require a remedial. You should also get a copy of ALL the medical records associated with the incident organized and ready to send ASAP. Best wishes. :thumb:

    My DS had a major concussion a couple of years ago during football. His Neurologist and Concussion Specialist cleared him medically for all activities. He played again this fall with no concussion or ill effects (All-State LB).

    He is currently DQ'd by DODMERB pending a waiver for the NROTC scholarship. We are waiting. Be prepared to share everything you have to get through this "history of head injury, D211.50). I hope it works out for you.
