    Hello. I'm a AFROTC cadet with an EA that just received a scholarship and possibly have a tarsal coalition. That's what the doctor who looked at my mri said but others don't necessarily think so. My question is if this will disqualify me and if I can keep my scholarship? Thanks for the help you can give me.

    The following is from a Navy website https://www.navycs.com/blogs/2008/08/13/medical-not-waiverable/comment-page-9

    "Tarsal coalition is DQ, even if it has been surgically repaired. Whether or not a waiver is approved will depend on your current range of motion and function, as well as the actual procedure performed (for instance, if any implants were used, waiver is unlikely). "
