    Does anyone know what the difference between the two status listed below? My daughters DODMERM page shows
    Current Medical Status: Qualified (USNA/CGA)
    Current Medical Status: Qualified Unrestricted Line (NROTC)

    It means she medically qualified for all three programs. "Unrestricted line" means what it says: There are no restrictions for "line" officer type positions. NROTC uses that designation, becase someone can be a Marine Corps Option, within NROTC, and NOT have the same medical qualifications. The USNA requires all midshipmen to have that DoDMERB certification upon admission, unless a special waiver is applied by the USNA. Marine Corps selection for midshipmen at the USNA, does NOT occur until their Junior year.:thumb:

    Mr Mullen, while we are on this subject, or one close to it (or perhaps it should be on a different thread?), does the NROTC application require a separate and distinct DoDMERB qualification as suggested by this thread?

    I was under the impression that the application (and supporting documentation) was shared between USNA and NROTC.

    Can anyone else answer this question?

    Each apoplication will have a medical status. If you apply for 2 programs, you'll receive 2 statuses; 3, 3, etc. So an applicant that applies to USNA and NROTC will have two medical statuses; one for each.:thumb:
