    Disqualified for ADHD

    I was just medically disqualified by DODMERB for a childhood ADHD diagnosis. I got nominations to USNA and USAFA. I haven't heard if they are going to request a waiver. I hope so. I am crushed, but I know there is hope. I haven't taken any medication in well over a year, I don't have a 504...

    Remedial Request

    I recently was alerted that I had a remedial Request. They just want some documentation for a hospital visit. This wasnt a serious visit and I won't be disqualified for the details that arise from this. Does this mean that aside from the extra documentation, I am largely qualified?

    I went on DoDMERB this morning and noticed for USMA that I “Did not meet medical standards.” There is not DQ code, but based off of the remedials I would assume it was cystic acne. It went away a while ago. Does anyone know if this is waiverable?
