Hi everyone, I am a HS junior (female) currently applying for an NROTC scholarship. Once I get my commission, I would like to go into aviation as either a pilot or an NFO, or barring that I would be fine with surface warfare or subs. I am 5'3", still growing, weight around 105 lbs. The one problem I can forsee with my application is that around the age of 6, I was diagnosed with mild asthma. I have not had an attack since I was 2. I've never used steroids like prednisone. I have been prescribed a maintenance medication (Flovent) in the lowest dose possible, but I never take it, and that fact is actually on my medical record. Additionally, my doctor has indicated that whatever it was I had, I have grown out of it. My spirometry levels are totally normal and not indicative of asthma whatsoever. Regardless, will my history DQ me for NROTC? It's worth mentioning that both a NROTC recruiter I spoke to at a college fair and my college counselor have told me to flat out lie and deny any history of asthma since such a minor version isn't worth losing my dream over. Thank you for your advice!
