    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...

    Adjustment Disorder Waiver and Grad School AROTC

    Hello all. I'm currently heading into my 4th year of undergrad and was unfortunately medically Dq'd from my Army ROTC program a few months ago. I was on a 3.5 yr scholarship and have been in the program since my freshman year. The Dq was due to a prescription for insomnia medication stemming...

    DQ-History of Food Allergies

    I am an aspiring AROTC student and I was DQ'd for history of food allergies. As a kid, I had a tree nut allergy, but not a peanut allergy (ironically, I'm addicted to peanut butter to this day). However, I have mostly grown out of my tree nut allergies, except for cashew nuts, which I am still...

    What should I do?

    I was notified that I did not receive an appointment from USAFA. I'll be honest, I was very disappointed. This is due to me not being able to "receive my waiver". BUT here is the problem/question I have. I was notified that my waiver should be processed within 15 business days back in...

    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." I misdiagnosed myself and rushed through the DODMERB questionnaire stating that I had a small case of eczema a month...

    Dear Everyone, I am currently in the process of applying to the USNA and the USMMA, I have completed every step and the last thing I needed was to be cleared by DODMERB. They had flagged me for having a history with psoriasis. In reality I have a mild case of psoriasis that isn't visible, my...

    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...

My problem is that I've been DQ'd for shoulder dislocation that happened last month. :( I have scheduled a surgery for around the end of December. After surgery, I will have to do rehab and physical therapy to build...

    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...

    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.
