    Context #1: DS is applying to USNA and NROTC. Here is an excerpt from the email authorizing him to register for the exam: "You are authorized to take a Department of Defense Medical Examination Review Board (DoDMERB) medical exam as part of your application to a Service Academy, ROTC, USUHS, or other military program." Based on the wording, he didn't know which application triggered the exam but he was happy to just keep things moving.

    Context #2: NROTC app is complete. USNA is more than 50% complete, per his BGO.

    Issue: DS just returned from his exam, with a status report simply acknowledging his exam. (I suggested asking for this in case there ever were any questions.) All good so far. Except.....the report references "Phys PrePI (ROTC Exam)".

    Question: Does this mean that this DoDMERB exam was just for NROTC, or will it also apply to USNA?

    It is for USNA
    ROTCs do not request DoDMERB until the scholarship is awarded.
    The results will be used for both if applicable.
