    Hello, this upcoming fall I will be a freshman in college and will enroll in the AROTC course. I recently interviewed with members of the cadre and performed the Army 1-1-1 test and was told by the Battalion Commander that I was eligible for either a three or four year on-campus scholarship and that he would inform me of his decision within a week. My question is about a year ago I had a DVT and was on medication for six months, I'm now completely cleared as I've been off of medication for several months, my doctor gave me a note saying I should be find for military service, and all of the genetic test came back negative. Physically I'm in better shape now than before I had the clot, however I realize this is probably a red flag for the DoDMERB. How likely is it that I can get a waiver? Sorry about the length of this post.

    DS had a DVT over a year ago and like yourself is completely healed and Dr. said it would not be a problem for military service. He was DQ'd on his DODMERB physical but received a waiver from West Point and now is waiting for a waiver from AROTC. Send me a message if you have any questions.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the reply Nazdad5, if you don't mind me asking do you remember how long the West Point waiver took?

    WP waiver took about 4 weeks after the waiver request. ROTC is taking longer and just today requested additional medical records...
