    Reapplicant after med DQ

    If I reapply (after a possible DQ), do they still have my medical forms from the previous year on file? I know DoDMERB is good for 2 years, but what about the waivers? Would I need to resend info?

    An Inconsistency With Medical Records

    I was looking through my medical health summary, and I realized there is some irregularities with the records. 1) I remember getting a very minor fracture in my skull when I was around 5 years old and getting stitches for the injury. I got the treatment at the same hospital that I am currently...

    What to disclose to a recruiter and checking medical records

    Hi, I have been interested in joining the Air Force for years now. I am 23 and have decided it is finally time. The only thing I am still unsure about is the medical history, what disqualifies you, what you can get a waiver for, and checking medical records. I have been told so many times to...

    Invisalign at USAFA

    I know similar threads have been posted here, but my current situation is slightly different. My current medical status is marked as “incomplete”, because during my survey and medical exam I noted currently having orthodontic work. The work is purely cosmetic, however, after sending the required...

    Waiverable shoulders?

    I am 20 years old, planning to start NROTC next fall at Virginia Tech. I pass everything on the checklist (even PT test), but I'm fairly certain my shoulders will medically disqualify me from service. When I was 17 I had a surgical repair done on my left shoulder (arthroscopic, minimally...

    Go through OSUT or wait for ROTC contract

    Hello, I'm an MSII at my schools AROTC Batallion. I fell like I'm in a very very critical moment of decision making in my life and would like some wisdom passed down or any advice. So basically, I enlisted in July of 2018 with my programs NG Recruiter. Ever since then, I've been drilling at RSP...

    Asthma 1 Month After 13th Birthday

    So here is the situation: I was last seen for "asthma" approximately one month after my 13th birthday. I already know this will result in a DQ. I have never been prescribed any medication or seen for asthma after that date; however, the word "asthma" still appears in my conditions to this day...

    Second Opinion and Service Options

    Good Afternoon, Back in 2012 I was diagnosed with vasculitus and underwent treatment. At that point I was, banking on either attending a Service Academy or SMC but was not able to attend either due to recovering. Fast forward to 2016, I vehemently still had the urge to serve and commission so...

    Hello, I have had my medical file reviewed yesterday and my newest message today is: Date letter sent - Single Disqualification (D211.50 and D164.70).

    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...

    Will I be automatically DQ?

    Hi there, I recently became "Board Ready" under my ROTC Cadet Command scholarship status! However, I feel as if my chances are slim of getting the scholarship. Even though the chances don't seem to high, I've decided to look at "next steps," just in case. DoDMERB is definitely on that list...

    AROTC Medical Disqualification - Hope?

    Unfortunately, I learned today that I had been medically disqualified from AROTC for the same reasons that disqualified me from attending USMA. Is it possible that the waiver review for AROTC will somehow turn out differently than it did for USMA? Is there still hope? Thanks.
