    I took my DODMERB physical this past summer and was cleared with no waivers needed. I got accepted to the Air Force Academy and am worried that on I-day my blood pressure might be higher than what it should be due to nerves. My blood pressure is normally within the good range but it shoots through the roof when i'm nervous. This concerns me because I know that I will be extra nervous and anxious on I-Day. If it is a little high, will they send me home?

    I don't remember them taking blood pressure on I-day. They drew blood, but I don't think they took blood pressure.

    Highly likely that you won't be the only one there with a serious case of anxiety and nervousness.
