    Just had a few questions about the dodmerb exam. I am a junior in high school as I have stated before in my previous posts. However, I have had a few conditions in the past that I believe will require some additional information. Should I bring my relevant medical history, records of medical tests that were recently performed, letters from my doctors to the initial exam? Would this be appreciated or should I wait for a remedial? Of course I am not even sure if I will be offered an AFROTC scholarship, but I have been told that my chances are decent (all medical history aside). I have also been told that preparation can be the difference between qualifications and disqualifications, but I am curious whether this is being too prepared (if such a thing exists in the dodmerb world).

    Thanks in advance!

    You cannot be over prepared for this! Good for you for getting started early. They are very thorough at Dodmerb. ..so sending more info earlier leaves more time later to get waivers if need be. Best of luck to you!

    Based on great advice on this Forum, we gathered up all the supporting documentation for several questionable items for my DS. I believe that we forwarded them to DODMERB after the scholarship notification but before the physical exam to get ahead of the game. If not, then it was as soon as the physical was completed. As a result, he was cleared right away. We included everything pertinent to the injuries.
