Thank you for all this information, very helpful. My boy is applying to the AFA but just got "medically disqualified" I think because of a history of asthma. He had the methacholine test and the administering doctor said it did not indicate asthma. Guess the DOD interpreted it differently? Anyway, he has not had any problems since 12, no meds, no doctor visits. He's a stong candidate, seven AP classes senior year (yes, seven), GPA 4.3, 33 ACT, sport, leadership, CAP. I know we need to request a waiver, but just wondering if the group has any suggestions, experience, encouragement, discouragement. Good luck to all.
