    NROTC-MO Medical Requirements

    Hey! I can't remember if I found the answer somewhere, and when I tried doing some research and couldn't find the answer either. For NROTC-MO, does color vision matter? I know for USNA could go MO if you are color deficient, and for regular NROTC they almost never hand out color vision waivers...

    Medical Waiver Question (Retained Hardware)

    Hello all, So obviously I know you all don’t have the whole picture of the situation, but I’ll try to detail it as best as I can. I’m in NROTC, about to commission at the end of the year. I’ve already had one DODMERB physical and been in perfect health. But this summer, I broke my arm...

    Do you need several forms/medical exams when you apply to several service academies?

    I know that completing a medical exam is a requirement for attending a service academy. Do you need to complete several forms and have several exams done for each Service Academy, or could you just use one form for all?

    Eyesight requirements for all academies?

    Hey all, I was wondering if there's a limit to how bad your eyes can be, or if they just have to be correctable to 20/20. My current prescription is -8.00 in my left eye and -7.75 in my right eye, however they are both corrected to 20/20 with glasses with slight astigmatism in both. Based on...

    CGAS/Application Question/Help

    First off, some backstory. Last year, I applied to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. I ended up on the waitlist for CGAS. I never got off the waitlist, and in reality I'm very lucky that I was not outright rejected as I had no medical on file (I was in a tough spot and chose to enlist ASAP instead...

    Application Question

    How long does it generally take for the Medical status to show up on the USMMA application portal after a decision from DODMERB? i.e. DoDMERB shows a status such as "Qualified"-- When would USMMA acknowledge this on the application portal?

    Academies and DoDMERB

    I have a question, and am looking for some insight. Today I saw that on DoDMETS, my status is "Closed." This is great news, as it seems that my info is moving forward. So I logged into to the website of DoDMERB, and saw that for each academy that I have applied to, there is a status of "Under...

    Waiver/Procedure Question

    I am requesting insight into a strange situation after having conducted my general medical exam today. First, off, I am enlisted in the military. I have gone through MEPS before and have also passed a flight physical exam with flying colors. With that in mind, I went to a civilian doctor for my...

    Help: When will DoDMERB Contact me?

    I have completed everything on the application for USAFA, USMMA, and USCGA except for the essays (which I'm working on, I just want them to be as good as possible before submitting). My question; is DodDMERB supposed to contact me for my medical examination? Or do I contact them? And do I need...

    Self harm scars, physician letter help

    I have self harm scars on one forearm and one thigh from 8+ years ago. It's obvious what it is so I'm being honest and up front about it. My recruiter said I need to get a medical clearance letter from a psychologist to submit with my medical. I've found a doctor that is willing to help me, but...

    Recruiting problem

    I am trying to enlist in the US Army. My recruiter had submitted waivers for some surgeries I had when I was younger. They got approved but he "forgot" to put in a Med form for a hernia I had repaired. I asked if he could add it and he told me that I could only submit one waiver and I was just...

    Can an applicant be accepted Early Action while waiting on a medical waiver?

    My daughter has submitted her portion of her USCGA application for Early Action. She is going in for her medical test tomorrow. We think there is a chance that due to a childhood medical condition (which was corrected and is no longer an issue or any kind of restriction) that she might initially...

    I still haven't received an email from DodMerb

    I emailed by BGO and he told me that I have finished 2/3s of the application and he said I should receive the DodMerb application soon. This was two weeks ago and I still have not recieve any such email, how much longer should I wait?

    Worried about DoDMERB process

    Long story short, while I was enlisted I had a small hernia from working out. I went to the ER and they ran scans on it as a precaution. Coincidentally they found a cyst on my liver and pancreas through the scans. After many exams and organ function tests, I checked out 100%. The cysts were...

    KP granted medical waiver, hold status now... but for how long?

    Two weeks ago, USMMA granted my daughter a medical waiver and her application status has been saying "hold" since then. When will we know if she will be receiving an appointment/getting rejected? If KP granted the medical waiver does this mean she's certain to get an appointment? New to this...

    Is this going to be a problem?

    Note: I've already been through the medical process and was cleared. Ok I'm going to be a bit more detailed after my doctors appointment today. I got an x-ray on my ribs today because I may have pectus carinatum but the DoD states this: i. Current chest wall malformation, including but not...

    Medically Disqualified?

    Hello everyone, I was recently medically disqualified due to old eczema issues that haven't affected me for over 6 years. I was wondering what my next step would be, do I have to request a waiver or contact USMA? Thank you for any help.

    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...
