    DoDMERB Help - AFROTC - Medication

    I wanted to ask if it would be worth joining AFROTC. I am getting off of my small dosage of prozac in roughly a week.

    Received an email from a USMMA admissions officer requesting additional medical information. I’m not sure if there are forms I need to fill out or if these are like paragraph numbers (like “pursuant to/in accordance with document R paragraph 251 sentence 22”?) Thanks for your help! Here’s the...

    I did not tell DODMERB I had surgery to get my deviated septum fixed and wisdom teeth removed. I just received an appointment to West Point should I inform DODMERB about this now? Or is this not a big deal?

    Breast Reduction

    I am at the academy and was wondering if any one has gotten a breast reduction surgery while they were in school. I also want to know if that was covered by insurance and how you even go about starting the process? What is the process as well? Thanks

    Remedial Request

    I recently was alerted that I had a remedial Request. They just want some documentation for a hospital visit. This wasnt a serious visit and I won't be disqualified for the details that arise from this. Does this mean that aside from the extra documentation, I am largely qualified?

    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?

    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...
