      Hi. I'm a prospective afrotc cadet. I was wrongfully diagnosed w/ depression/anxiety by a nurse practitioner in 2015, then again wrongfully diagnosed w/ PTSD in 2017. I also have a DUI from 2010 on my record. I was prescribed meds but never took them. If I get a new mental evaluation by a Psychiatrist showing that I'm cured, will that + a waiver for the DUI (I have no other arrests) be enough to get me into AFROTC?

      Director Mullen, my son, Kyle was awarded a National Air Force ROTC scholarship and selected his college based on the ROTC program. He was DQed for OCD on his medical application, automatically appealed - waiver and DQed for the waiver. We were waiting for someone to ask for specific information but that never happened. next steps, what do you suggest? Thanks, Steve at

      You said any current perforations is a automatic dq? No waivers will be approved?

      Hi Mr. Mullen I have a question? If USNA medically denies an applicant, then how does the applicant request a waiver. USAF has already sent the waiver but nothing from USNA.
      Thank You

      Hi Mr. Mullen, this might be the beginning of a beautiful relationship. My DS has completed physical and optometric exams for dodmerb. Today the dodmets site states all medical forms are in. So I click to check status. Can't sign in, can't create new account. The message :There is no application matching the social security number or date of birth entered.
      Please confirm your SSN and Date of Birth. If these are correct please contact DoDMERB.
      ,,,,,,ds is currently applying to USMMA, USCGA and has completed package for NROTC.
      I interpet as, since NROTC package is awaiting selection it has not been sent to dodmerb. And USMMA is awaiting one letter of recommendation to be complete and reviewed,,,, is this why dodmerb states no application matches the ss# and password? Or has something been entered incorrectly after the physical examination?

      Mr. Mullen: I have tried logging in to the dodmerb web site today with the username and temporary password provided by dodmerb today, but I still cannot get in. I wanted to verify status for ROTC; for SAs I was found during the summer to be qualified. Thanks for any help you can give me.

      Mr. Mullen...

      My son is applying to USAFA and USCGA. He was accepted to both AFASummer Seminar and the USCGA Summer AIM programs. He had allergy shots for a couple of years from age 13-15. He is 18 now no longer has seasonal allergies and off the program. Is this still a DQ? If so, what are his chances of a waiver?

      He is a 4.0 student

      Capt of track Team
      many many more....

      Mr. Mullen,

      I'm a student at McLean High School and I have always wanted to go to the Naval Academy but I have very light asthma. I don't know if I can go but if you could shed some light on my situation and if I can do anything to do something to improve my chances of passing medical examination.

      Thank you,

      Hi Larry,

      My son, Collin Sykes, is an accepted candidate for the Coast Guard Academy, pending a medical waiver. I have taken numerous steps to provide DODMERB with medical evidence that Collin's brief episode (1 month) of absence seizures at age 5 have not hindered him in any way. I would like your imput on the steps I have taken to date. Thank you, in advance, for your assistance. Joanne Sykes

      I just joined this forum today. I wrote the AROTC requesting a waiver, and I was wondering how I will go about receiving confirmation from the AROTC.
