    Back in July I completed my DoDMERB tests and was found qualified for West Point. Do i need to take the test again if I win an army ROTC 4 year scholarship or is there a way I can send cadet command my results?

    DoDMERB results to private schools

    Is it possible to get the DoDMERB results sent to Citadel, VMI, etc.? If so, what is the process?

    DoDMERB has a habit of granting scholorships, then taking them away, leaving family to foot the bill. I am a widow on disability and they revoked my daughters scholorship becuase they have no clue what a myopothy is. If they did, they would offer what they THINK it is.
    Requesting a hearing doesnt work. So... if you have any medical issue, even the common cold......LIE!!!!!!!! cause they wil cheat you out of what you have EARNED!!!!!:

    Mrs Lewis - Those comments are incorrect and inaccurate. Pls don't let your previous apologies ring hollow. I know in your heart you don't want to mislead other young folks. I will call you momentarily.

    Mrs Lewis - I appreciate your willingness to speak with me, even though it was almost midnight. Regrettably, you were not privy to the letters that had been sent to your daughter. Checking the mail or obtaining the copies of those letters from the ROTC program will certainly increase your knowledge of the events/decisions that took place. Enjoy your weekend and than you again for your time:thumb:

    I just want to throw a quick note in here: the DoDMERB staff are excellent at their job and do their best to help people through the process. They have strong integrity and work hard to help you out when they can.

    Unfortunately sometimes the answer is no. Sometimes they will grant a waiver, and other times not. This isn't just something they pull out of a hat, they go through the process of going through the paperwork, going through the medical records, and weighing it against the needs of a military force still at war.

    Thousands of applicants and the same fair treatment is given to each individual.

    Like I said, sometimes they just can't medically clear you for one reason or another, but it is based on the individual, and they know that they are working for people, not numbers. They know lives and careers could be at stake, and take their duty very seriously.

    When I went through this whole process last year it was nerve wracking, but I knew I was in good hands. Larry for example does a tremendous job addressing the needs of people on the individual level. He will do the research, look up records, respond to emails, and call you to make sure that you are informed and to help you through the process.

    Some people reading this will unfortunately be denied a medical waiver, but it's important not to get mad at DoDMERB, or to feel like it's the end. There are always options out there to serve this country, and you should always have Plan B ready.

    Thanks Eagle 1.:thumb: U R correct. One clarification. DoDMERB is ONLY charged with rendering the initial determination of MEETS standards or does NOT meet standards. This is based SOLELY on the results of the medcial exam and history, in accordance with the DoD medical accession standards...nothing else.

    Waivers =

    1. Medical waivers are GRANTED/DENIED by the specific Academy and or ROTC program where the applicant has applied.

    2. For ALL Service Academies, the Admissions office determines if medical waiver processing will be directed. This decision is based on the applicant's competitiveness for an offer of appointment.

    3. For national ROTC scholarship award winners (contingent upon receiving medical clearance), all applicants are reviewed by the specific ROTC program(s) for medical waiver consideration.

    4. For campus based ROTC program applicants found NOT to meet standards at DoDMERB, the respective ROTC Commander (PMS, PNS, PAS) will determine if he/she will seek medcial waiver consideration.:thumb:
