    I've been trying to do my research but have seen multiple conflicting answers on this topic and was hoping someone could help me out. I've noticed that on the USAFA and AFROTC websites it says that history of seasonal allergies past age 12 can be a DQ. I'm currently 14 and get seasonal...

    Disqualified for things I don't have?

    I was medically DQ'ed by DoDMERB early on the application process. It was really frustrating because everything that they claimed I had, I didn't.
