Will lack of ROTC recruits in college increase the chance of a waiver?

    Those statements have nothing to do with your case and there's no one on the Forums that can provide you a more accurate answer. You can ALWAYS pursue Academies and/or ROTC, but I'd highly encourage YOU to seek out civilian opportunities as a back-up plan. That is the best advice YOU will get anywhere:thumb:

    I guess this is one of those cases where I receive what I needed to hear, but not what I wanted to hear. I just really want to obtain a waiver! :rolleyes:

    I am NOT saying you won't. I can't speak for them. But, it would be inappropriate for me in YOUR case, not to provide you the best advice possible. Many times, I have no clue, but in your case, I "think" it would unlikely. That said, we'll see what we'll see:thumb:

    Is there any way that I can undergo the DoDMERB process before the application process is finished? I understand that I will have to pay for it, but I would like to know whether or not I will be wasting my efforts trying to get a scholarship only to be denied because of the medical.

    Why? How difficult is the ROTC application process? Many candidates on these forums apply to three ROTC programs and 3+ Service academies. How much work is required for 1 or 2 ROTC applications? How do you know you'll even be selected for a ROTC scholarship and need to to take a DoDMERB exam?

    I'd suggest you get with the program and complete your ROTC applications FIRST and then worry about the DoDMERB if you are awarded a scholarship. Also, similar to ALL the other candidates, don't forget to apply to colleges that you can attend both with a ROTC scholarship and those that you can afford without one.
    Good Luck. :thumb:
