    Hello- is there a time frame on when you need to have a surgical procedure done before you enter the academy? It should be a simple procedure to fix obstructed breathing due to an old broken nose that the surgeon did not want to fix until " my nose grew into my face around age 17". I am now 17 and was going to put it off because of sports but am now wondering will I be ready if it will affect my application for class of 2020. Any advice is appreciated.

    The best person to answer this is an MD from DODMERB. Go online, find their information number, and give them a call. They're usually really good at answering questions just like this!
