    I turned in everything to DODMERB about a week ago. The Doctor said that I am really healthy and pass every test with flying colors. In the past, Other doctors believed that I had scolosis. So they sent me to get a xray. They later found out that the results came negative. So I don't have scolosis. So why do Dodmerb have a remedial for it? Is this going to disqualify me from receiving the scholarship. What doctor do I go to? and How do Dodmerb receive it? Want to get this done quick! :eek:

    Read your remedial request sheet, it should detail a code that describes what they are looking at, if you need to see a doctor or to simply just submit your records etc. I wouldn't sweat it right now, my son needed to provide some records and he was classified as "qualified" for both USAFA and AFROTC soon after. Just read the paperwork that came in the envelope, and you can get a description of the different codes on the DODMERB site.

    Good luck!

    The reason DoDMERB is doing a remedial is that you must have answered a question somewhere on your form that referred to scoliosis. Romad is right, there should be info in your letter telling you exactly what to do, what to send in, etc. Take care of that soon! My son has mild scoliosis, DoDMERB asked for a remedial, and he had to send in any medical records we had about it, which we did ASAP. He was cleared soon after (this was last year). He is now at the AFA, but also received an AFROTC scholarship that he would have used had he not been appointed to the academy. So don't think the doors are closed for you yet, just take care of whatever it is that DoDMERB wants!
