I saw some information about this in the Service Academy forum but not on ROTC. My son is a sophomore in high school and strongly desires to obtain a Navy ROTC scholarship. He is an excellent student at a very competitive public school and has already performed quite well on his first go at the SAT. Our main concern is that he was diagnosed about two years ago with the Inattentive Form of ADHD. My wife is in the medical field and was concerned at the time about putting him on any meds so we have not. Since he has performed well, we have not informed the schools of his condition so he has not received any accommodations up to now. He has received all A's and B's despite the fact that he tends to be forgetful and disorganized and, in certain classes, can have a short attention span and be easily distracted. I see his frustrations at times so I am having him evaluated again and have now asked the schools about accommodations. I saw from a poster on the Academy forum that receiving accommodations not received by other students, such as extended time for tests or assistance with organization, is disqualifying for the Academy. Does anyone know if the same is true for ROTC? I wouldn't think it would be since all of the universities offer accommodations, including VMI and other military schools. We have contemplated trying medication but it sounds as though he can kiss any chance at an ROTC scholarship goodbye if we make that choice. I would appreciate any information anyone has on potential disqualifiers for NROTC with respect to issues surrounding ADHD. Also, if anyone has information on waivers when DODMERB has disqualified, I'd appreciate that as well. Thanks for any information.
