    I received a medical waiver for the Academy for a history of allergic reactions to be stings. A big part of the package I sent to the Academy regarding the issue (including the doctor's letter) before receiving the waiver was that I was receiving immunotherapy. I'm not done with the shots, however, and won't completely be by I-Day either. The more rounds of shots you go through, the less often you need them. As my schedule stands right now, I should ideally be getting about 4 treatments during the time taken up by BCT. Has anyone else gone through basic in the midst of scheduled treatment? Does it seem it would be at all possible to get some of my shots while at the academy, knowing that they gave me the waiver while I was in the middle of treatment? (Also, if you go too long between rounds you need to back track, but I'd really just like to get it done. Thanks

    I can't speak for USAFA, but in enlisted basic, there was the opportunity to get medical treatment. Even when we were on our mock deployment, there was a medic on site every morning for sick-call/treatments.
