    ROTC Scholarship - Medical Disqualification

    I was recently awarded a 4-year Army ROTC scholarship but have been disqualified by DoDMERB for a peanut allergy (I've already gone through the medical exams for the SAs back in November so DoDMERB just transferred my information to AROTC). Yes, I know that the ROTC cadre at the university I...

    West Point application - allergies/cough

    I am excited to be applying for West Point. My biggest worry is the Dodmerb Report of Medical History.

    I am an aspiring AROTC student and I was DQ'd for history of food allergies. As a kid, I had a tree nut allergy, but not a peanut allergy (ironically, I'm addicted to peanut butter to this day).

    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. When I was in my physical exam I even stated that I did not have these medical issues. Thankfully I was able to get a waiver to USAFA and I'm fairly...
