    My son received an AFROTC scholarship and was not given a waiver for a hip condition he suffered when younger. He is very active, the Concorde doctor gave him a thumbs up, but the AFROTC decision maker said no - period.
    He then found out about the Army Helicopter Flight Program at UND, applied for a AROTC scholarship, and just got the news that he has his waiver.
    Different branches and each academy have their own decision makers. Don't give up if one says no - PERIOD!

    Congrats! Understand, Concorde Docs don't have any decision making authroity. They just conduct the exams. I'm glad it worked out:thumb:
