    DoDMerb Concussion

    The answer is that when you check yes to certain items, there are automatic questionnaires that are generated. You check yes to allergies, even though you put a detailed description on the medical history form, DoDMERB will still send you an allergy questionnaire. The same holds true for the...

    online medical history

    On the online medical form put down the estimated dates of treatment (you can just write "estimated" after the dates). DoDMERB does understand that you may not remember the exact dates of all treatments, so there is nothing to worry about. As for the copies of medical records, I would not...

    Middle Ear Surgery

    Some general information regarding tubes. If you had tubes as a young child there should not be any issues as long as the ear drums have healed up. In the majority of cases these are not an issue.

    What is the USNA policy on Tobacco?

    All the academies, and services for that matter, try to prevent tobacco use. They cannot forbid its use, but they do make it difficult to use both smoke and smokeless tobacco. So if you smoke or use smokeless tobacco I would urge you to quit. Trying to quit during plebe summer would not be fun!

    When to start

    For USNA, once the applicant has 50% of the application submitted to USNA admissions, the USNA admissions office will submit the applicants name to DoDMERB. Applicants cannot start the DoDMERB process, it is initiated by the program (academy or ROTC program). So you need to wait for the...
