    Has anyone noticed that the DQ codes on the DoDMERB website have changed in the past week or so? In particular, I was looking at chest wall malformation or pectus excavatum. Recently, the long explanation of the code provided the disclaimer "as long as it does not interfere with vigorous physical activity" and it specifically mentioned pectus excavatum and pectus carinatum. Now it simply says chest wall malformation. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Spull,

    Please look at http://www.serviceacademyforums.com/showthread.php?t=26760 This thread is about pectus excavatum.

    In essence the answer will be the same. Take the exam, nobody here can tell you anything since we do not sit on the waiver board for whichever branch you desire, we are not DoDMERB docs.

    You need to place your goal on getting an apptmt or a ROTC scholarship, not if you will get DQ because the wording has changed. Spend this time practicing the CFA/PFA, writing essays, and studying for another SAT/ACT round, not trying to decipher the hidden meaning that was written by JAG officers to be in regs legally for DoDMERB purposes.
