I've had my heart set on the academies(particularly West Point), but on Friday I found out that the USMA doctors denied me from medical waiver consideration. I'm hoping ROTC will have a different view on my conditions which I believe to be very borderline between DQ and a waiver. But, since I've spent all my time focusing on the academies, I'm a bit unfamiliar with how this process works. my NROTC application is complete and my AROTC application is just waiting on the interview so I'll go before the March Board. I just need help understanding how the scholarship works if you're medically DQ'd. It seems like a lot of people participate in ROTC for a while, find out they didn't receive a waiver, and then are stuck in limbo. Maybe someone who has been there done that can help. I'll continue researching more to see what I can come up with.
