    I am currently enrolled as a contracted cadet in AFROTC. I am a sophomore and rethinking about whether or not I want to stay in the program. The main reason is I have been having a progressing medical issue. I have been having medical problems the past couple of months and been in and out of doctor's offices however nothing was found wrong. Basically they do not know what is causing my symptoms. Since they cannot find a problem I cannot go on Medical Recheck Status. I know if I disenrolled, I would either have to pay back the money or serve on active duty. However from what I have read online most likely I will pay back the money. I have a few questions: 1. If a medical issue is a problem however they cannot find what is wrong can I disenroll without paying back the money? (Because I have been having chest pains and the inability to breathe while doing PT) 2. If I have to pay back the money, is it just sophomore expenses or is it both freshman and sophomore expense? Also is the payback just tuition and fees or is it also the book allowance and stipends? 3. Do you have to pay back all of the money at one time or is their payment plans? If payment plans, how long are you given and is there interest? Thanks in advance.

    I'll leave it to others to answer your detailed questions regarding repayment. Just wondering what doctors you have been to. A cardiologist? Sounds like it might be time for a stress test to me, unless of course you have already done that and been given a clean bill by the cardiologist. Of course there is no need or obligation to disclose anything here. Just want to make sure its something you've at least thought about.

    Yes sir. I have seen a cardiologist twice and have performed a stress test. I have Premature atrial contractions and palpitations after coming off of exercises however he thinks its not a problem.

    I recommend you read the following thread:
    http://www.serviceacademyforums.com/showthread.php?t=27658
    Based on the information in the above thread it "seems" as though payment plans may possibly be negotiated as well as the pay back amount.

    If you decide to voluntarily dis-enroll without a verified/valid medical diagnosis, I think you should consider consulting an attorney that is familiar with military law BEFORE resigning. JMPO....
