    Disqualifying Medical Condition - Varicocele

    What would be the qualification determination for a candidate of USNA and USMMA class of 2024 who had a Left (only) Varicocele corrected via ligation in the summer of 2018. A full recovery occurred. There is now no varicocele present. From my research this is what I have found: Ex: "57...

    My DD, a second year applicant received a DQ because her BMI was a little high. Upon review it was determined that an error had been made. That was confirmed by an AFROTC Physical Fitness Assessment. In that assessment, besides her BMI being within the margin for a waiver, her fitness score was...

    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...

    Under Waiver Review vs Under DoDMERB Review

    Hi! I applied to 3 academies and NROTC. I have a medical disqualification and received a waiver for both USNA and USAFA. NROTC is still pending—for weeks my status said “Under Waiver Review”. Just recently my status for NROTC has changed to “Under DoDMERB Review”. What is the difference between...

    Waiver timeline

    My son was medically disqualified on December 9 due to a dislocated patella. DODMERB status says under waiver review but portal status still says disqualified. He has emailed his RC twice to explain the situation but hasn’t heard anything. Is there anything else he can do or do we all just need...

    Marijuana use and the DoDMERB

    Before I go any further, I want to state that I know I have made a grave mistake (several, in fact). I am prepared to be disqualified and I understand that my actions will have consequences. However, I would also very much like to not be disqualified and I believe that I have grown since my...

    Eczema DQ

    Hi I am a second year on-campus, non-scholarship, ROTC cadet and DODMERB DQ'd me a couple of months ago for having "a history of atopic dermatitis or eczema after 12th birthday."

    The Waiver Process

    These questions are for @DoDMERB - Deputy Chief or anyone who might know: 1. An applicant has been given a single DQ and then awarded a waiver from two separate SAs with only an applicant statement requested. The third has requested that the applicant see a specialist. Once the applicant sees...

    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...

    Waiver and cadre error

    Hi, First, I must apologize for the vagueness of this information. My DS is in graduate school and has been handling this situation on his own. He is reticent with info b/c he does not want his parents intervening; however, I need help understanding what is going on and if anything can be done...

    Just curious

    I wonder how many candidates (ROTC/SAs/OCS) are DoDMERB qualified without needing a waiver (that is, they make the DoDI 6130.03 requirements). Seems to me that this percentage would be quite low considering the number of people on here with DQs and waivers.

    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.

    My daughter is a high school senior and has submitted her portion of her application to the USCGA to be considered for Early Action. She is going in for her physical exam tomorrow for DODMERB.

    Army ROTC Medical Questions

    I’m a sophomore in college right now and I was planning on joining the ROTC. My plan was to take a year off college, enlist in the regular army first, and then join the ROTC as an SMP. (I know that you don’t have to enlist beforehand but I want to do it.) So the problem is that recently I was...
