Late summer I decided not to pursue WP. I am seeking an ROTC scholarship at VMI and U of Mich. I had my physical mid summer for WP. After I cured a remedial I found out they were going to DQ me for "food allergies". I have seen an allergist since then for the skin & blood test and it's just "food sensitivity". I didn't know this when I declared my issue with carrots on my medical form. Sometimes my ears itch a little after eating raw, unpeeled carrots. There is NO life threatening food allergy and certainly not to carrots or anything else. Now I am in the waiver line for food allergies. Two questions: 1) I have been told my file is ready for the Oct ROTC board. Could I have a waiver in time? I have a long letter and test results from this allergist, (tests paid for by my parents), 2) Will the ROTC board know I was DQ'ed for WP through DoDMERB? I think I'm a fairly competitive candidate for VMI and U of Mich. 29-ACT, 3.6 unweighted college prep high school, some college credits & AP, lots of leadership, music, rifle, running, good score on President's Fitness, interview went well. My status just changed today to DQ on the DoDMERB website and I don't have a letter of instructions for the waiver process. HELP ME, PLEASE! I looked at the DodMERB site again and it says: "Agency-USMA". Will the ROTC board request their own medical? How does this work?
