    I have medically disqualified for asthma and had remedials done. My doctors sent in the remedials to DoDMERB and my current status is "Pending Waiver Submission/Review (as of 10-DEC-10 )"
    I am applying to USMA and I have finished my file and just received a nomination. I know that Major Belmont will be back on Jan. 9 after a holiday leave and I hope to hear back as soon as possible.
    How much longer do you think this medical qualification process take? Both my doctors (One who administered the spirometry and the one who consulted me regarding the results) have told me that I am perfectly fine and have no problems regarding my asthma condition.
    So any ideas of when this should be cleared?

    There is no specific time table as every case is different, but if you e-mail Larry Mullen, Dep. Director at DoDMERB, he can help you out.

    Good luck!

    Flat Feet?

    DS has applied for NROTC and is patiently :yllol: waiting to hear. Meanwhile, pediatrician mentioned flat feet at last physical. He's a competitive swimmer who runs as part of training, with no arch supports or issues. Is this a potential DoDMERB problem?

    Not answering your question about your DS or any other particular applicant....the standard is:

    An applicant does NOT meet standards if they have: Rigid or symptomatic pes planus (acquired or congenital)

    Pes Planus is flat feet:thumb:
