    My son had applied to the AFA. He heard today that his medical issue is non waiverable. (growth hormone treatment). He is working through the ROTC process in the mean time. Will the inablility to get a waiver also apply to ROTC or is this a separate issue for another medical board?

    thanks,

    Mike

    It's a separate issue. Usually the outcomes are the same, but not always. If you post on the DoDMERB section of the forum, you may find someone who has had a similar issue. Good luck!

    KP is correct, usually if the AFA says no so will AFROTC, HOWEVER, the DQ comes from DoDMERB and the source (branch) is the one that determines to waive it. Just because AFA or AFROTC says no, does not equate to the fact that USMA/USNA or A/NROTC will say no.

    AFROTC grads go AD for yrs there is no other track, thus, for them they usually mimic AFA when it comes to waivers...in other words if the AFA says you are not fit for AD duty, you will not be fit for duty for AFROTC.
