    I got my scholarship letter for AROTC today, and it says "Selection status: medically qualified and pending administrative qualification" because later on in the letter under the section: Action is still required on your part. It says im not medically qualified.


    So what does this mean?

    Have you received your clearance notice form DoDMERB for AROTC?

    Did you apply to an SA and already took your exam at the SAs request? If so, maybe that is it. IE a candidate for USMA and took the exam back in Sept., no waivers needed. Currently you are medically qualified for USMA, and now AROTC has to sign off that they too agree.

    It may sound strange, but the way it works is the commissioning source has to sign off. In my example, even though both are Army commissioning sources. WP is an SA commissioning source and AROTC is a different commissioning source

    At least that is how it works for AFROTC recipients that also applied USAFA.

    Remember DoDMERB just quals the commissioning source waives if needed.

    It's kind of a long story but I took a DoDMERB medical last year for ROTC but i declined the offer so I was hoping last year's physical would be accepted for this year. I'm glad it did.

    Sounds like they still have it on file. I think it is good for two years. I would verify that with your ROO or Cadet Command.

    DoDMERB is valid for two years. Be very careful and look at the date of the exam.

    IE took it August 27, 2013. School starts August 12, 2015. You may believe you are cleared to go because it is within the 2 year marker. However, if they give the 1st PFT, on the 17th and you fail with the retake on the 31st, you are officially out of the parameters for DoDMERB and will be sent through it again.

    Basically you are probably good to go.

    I took it March 2014. So I think I will be fine; however, im gonna bring the letter to the ROO of the college that I wish to attend next year and show him it on the Presidents' Day since im doing a visit. I'm also gonna call Cadet Command too to verify. But thanks for the info Pima!

    I recently received a 4 year Army ROTC Scholarship to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I was medically disqualified by DODMERB for Army ROTC for a history of spondylolysis. I was also medically disqualified for the United States Military Academy for the same condition, but was granted a waiver. Since USMA and AROTC are both a part of the Department of the Army, would it be safe to assume that I would receive a medical waiver for Army ROTC too?

    No I would not assume that at all. Different waiver authority I believe. You may want to contact the waiver folks at Cadet Command and let them know you have been granted a waiver for your condition from USMA, the CC Surgeon General may follow USMA's lead and do the same. Good luck.
