    When we show up for I day or once we get to the academy, do we have another dodmerb physical with the same forms and things like that? Does the physical on I day go through/to dodmerb for updates? Thanks

    No. The medical examination on I-Day is pretty cursory. It's mostly to ensure that you're able to participate in the physical portions of Plebe Summer (i.e. you didn't show up broken).

    If I'm not mistaken there is another physical towards the end of your time at the academy to help determine what communities you are elligible for. In any case if you want to fly you'll have a pretty in-depth flight physical that may ask for your medical history and things like that.

    But this physical is not done through dodmerb but rather the navy itself right?

    Yes, you are done with DoDMERB. DoDMERB only handles ROTC, Academy, and USUHS applicants.

    Does IT band syndrome count as broken? Fighting it so hard right now. Never been more terrified in my life.

    Will the USNA check for conformation of the tattoo policy during this cursory physical?
