    Hearing DQ

    Hi! I intend on enrolling in Army ROTC this Fall as a freshman. I already started my dodmerb as I was initially applying to USMA, but I have a DQ for my right ear. I can only hear 25% ish in it, but my other ear makes up for it and meets Army regulations, according to my ear surgeon who did some...

    I was recently taken to the hospital for a fall. I was not injured other than a pretty nasty bump on the head. However, I was intoxicated and it is in the medical file. I recently received my appointment and have already conducted my Dodmerb. I am under 21, so I am hesitant to report this if I...

    Potential Pilot Qualified (PPQ)

    Is there anyway to check if I am potential pilot qualified on the DoDMERB site or USAFA/AFROTC sites? There are some other threads about this, and they say that if your status is "commission qualified" you are NOT PPQ. But they are a few years old, and things may have changed. My DODMERB...

    Medical Disqualification

    Good morning, I received a DoDMERB disqualification for "Current or history of any abnormality of the retina, choroid, or vitreous" on February 20th.

    Virgina Tech CC

    I'm debating on whether I should go to Virginia Tech or and in-state public college. Much of my decision depends on if I can get a scholarship while not being medically qualified. In other words, do I need to be medically qualified by the year I attend LEAD or the perspective field training...

    Automatic Rejection?

    Hello USMA community, Quick question: If I’m still listed as “pending waiver submission/review” by May 1st, am I automatically rejected? USMA resquested a waiver for my disqualifying condition(s) on January 23 right when my medical came back as “does not meet medical standards”. Thanks.
