Hello. My son was DoDMERB qualified for USMA, USCGA and AROTC this past fall. Was rejected at USCGA, QNS for USMA and AROTC...until today. Offered a 4 year AROTC scholarship today directly from the Battalion of his #2 choice school. Somehow, they have extra money to play with. After initially being rejected by AROTC, and assuming he was out of the running for any scholarship, he decided to go to the doctor to get some lower back pain checked out. He found out he has a small bulging disc in his back...not a big deal, but had an mri and is going to PT and a chiropractor. He wants to take the scholarship, as he was planning on this for the past year. Will this type of thing show up on his permanent medical record, thus DQ'ing him from ROTC? Again , he has already passed the DoDMERB exam. He has to let them know by the end of the week whether or not he wants the scholarship, so any immediate suggestions are welcomed. Thanks in advance!!!
