I've been pursuing an appointment to USAFA, USNA, and USMA for a while now (in fact, my air force and Navy applications are 100% complete as of last week). Unfortunately, I'm going to be looking for a waiver for some (asymptomatic) thoracic scoliosis. I've started looking at other options for joining the military as I'm pretty much set on military service. I've applied to AF/NROTC, but those are abviously also dependent on DoDMERB and are their own waiver authorities. I'm considering doing something along the lines of enlisting USAF and going for PJ or trying to be a USGC rescue swimmer. I get that enlistment has different medical standards than dodmerb, but would scoliosis be a problem for those specific career fields? What about other special operations jobs? Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, but I couldn't really find a better place to put it.
