    Hello, I would like to do AFROTC and possibly even enlist in the air reserves beforehand. Unfortunately I was prescribed an inhaler for exercise induced asthma until 16. I believe I could’ve stopped it earlier but never quite did. I no longer need an inhaler or show any symptoms for over a year. I’m just curious what my chances are of successfully getting a waiver? Also is it off table to neglect to tell them, I’ve read that may eventually they’ll find out so it’s not encouraged? Should I get any test done beforehand or just wait until/if they ask.

    You need to tell them end of subject. There are a ton of threads regarding asthma. Just use the search tab and they will all pop up. Good luck

    Never hide your medical history. I know a 3/C at USNA who failed the methocholine both before entering the academy and after who is still a Mid.
