In April, I was awarded the 180,000 MSISR (Minority Serving Institution Scholarship Reservation) NROTC scholarship. I plan on attending an HBCU in Atlanta in the fall. I was assigned to NSI phase 2 but the night before I was scheduled to leave, I was informed that my DoDMERB wavier was denied and I was told not to go to NSI and focus on getting my waiver denial appeal. Hopefully you can help.
I am an incoming plebe for USNA and I recently was informed by my dentist that I will have to get my wisdom teeth extracted via an oral surgeon this year. Do you have any information on how this could be done at the Naval Academy or what protocol follows if I come back from Thanksgiving break with a healing gum?
In March, I injured my back doing deadlift and for the past 3 months, I have been re-injuring it to the point that it is starting to worry me. I’m worried that seeking help from Doctors will lead me to an MRI, which could potentially disqualify me from the academies. I just really need some advice on what I should do.
Hi Mr. Mullen, I was wondering when is the earliest I can be scheduled for a dodmerb exam (class of 2026)? I have already submitted my candidate statements, candidate personal data record, background experience form, and 3/4 SOEs. I have ordered SAT scores and requested transcripts, although these still have to arrive. Thank you for the help!
I have a couple of questions for you regarding a medical waiver for food allergies. I've sent you a more detailed email with the subject: Tiger21-Advice Needed for Medical Waiver. I would greatly appreciate if you could provide me any guidance as I'm unsure of how to proceed with the waiver process. Thank you very much for your help.
I was considered disqualified and had an AMI (administrative type) requesting info on a incident I experienced 6 years ago. I sent all docs at least 4 weeks ago, and recently found out my case manager (assigned technician Anna Stowe) has now retired. I'm looking for any/all guidance.
I sent a detailed email with the subject "Army Green to Gold Phase 2 Applicant"
My name is Justin P. Teufel. I’ve seen scpanos101’s thread talking about having a blood clotting disorder and getting a waiver. I’m trying to join regular army & have a similar condition. A more detailed explanation will be in email. The subject will be “Chance of A Waiver — From scpanos101’s Post on Service Academy Forums”. I am looking forward to your response. Thank you Sir.
Hi Mr. Mullen. I applied and was selected for an Air Force ROTC program. However, I was disqualified for marking that I had ADHD (I have never taken medication and I thrive academically) on my initial medical evaluation form and was denied a waiver. I was told that I may appeal and was given a list of documents to send back to the DoDMERB point of contact. What is the best way to proceed? Thank you for your help!
Hello Mr. Mullen! I've emailed you a few times in an effort to establish contact but I'm unsure if any of them got through. Would you be willing to check if you've received "Deathhawk150-SAF= Expedite Medical Waiver?" If not, I could try sending yet another email, but since that isn't working too well, would you mind trying to email me?
I was tested for COVID 19 back in January. I reported the positive test to DODMERB and afterwards tested negative, I submitted the COVID 19 questionnaire to DODMERB. AMI was requested for a physician exam. DODMERB keeps asking me to fill out the the questionnaire which I have already done with a response to visit a private physician. Can you guide me to the correct forms to take to the exam?
" A guy with intricate knowledge" lol... So here goes my questions!!
My son's DoDMERB portal says "under waiver review" GREAT! (do you know a typical time frame)
He has also applied to the AFROTC, he is awaiting the release on April13th. Regardless of scholarship, he still wants join and serve. Who does he contact within the AFROTC so they can initiate the wavier process so he can still go into the Air Force?
I have been offered an appointment to USAFA but had to be granted a waiver. Initially the waiver was denied but upon rebuttal I was able to secure a waiver. Dodmerb gave me disqualification codes for medical conditions I don't have. Can those disqualification codes be re-evaluated (hopefully removed) if I submit the info in my rebuttal packet to Dodmerb? Thank you!
I am a college re-applicant that has been trying to get in touch with DoDMERB for about a month now to schedule an appointment, but I have been able to reach anyone. I was hoping you could provide some necessary information on how to speed up the process. Thank you.
I am In the process of completing my dodmerb and I’m not feeling confident about passing it. I say this because I was diagnosed with ADHD at a younger age and I used adderall until two (school) years ago. I’m wondering what needs to be done when (or if) I get DQ’d so that I can make sure I can still be eligible for my ROTC scholarship. Thank you!
I have not been contacted yet regarding completing the DODMERB medical evaluation for the USNA. I understand that the processes is slightly different this year but was wondering if there was any way I could accelerate the process?
