    Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this ---

    I am currently a non-contracted Army ROTC cadet. I submitted my DODMERBs paperwork several months ago, but because I took medication in high school for anxiety (zoloft) I was DQed. I am currently in the waiver process and though I'll be sending in more documentation (letters of recommendation from my Prof. of Military Science, etc) I know the chances of receiving a waiver are relatively small.

    So, I was wondering; if the Army ROTC program fails to grant a waiver, do I stand a better chance going through NROTC offered at my university instead? Do they use the same forms and process? I've been told that at this point, DODMERBs no longer is involved in my waiver process but that the decision will be made by Army Cadet Command.

    I am currently a sophomore and will graduate in 2011. If ROTC fails, there is always direct commission (I plan on going into law) but I would like to explore my other options.
