    As I have previously posted here, I have asthma which was diagnosed at an early age and which I haven't had many problems with lately. I took some advice and was able to go see a professional pulmonologist and found out my asthma is dormant and I should have no problem with strenuous physical activity, especially if I took Advair as a preventative measure.

    However, the only real question was if scuba diving would be required at any of the academies, since breathing out of a tank could cause my asthma to flare up. If scuba is required, would I be allowed to take Advair or maybe take an alternate course? Thanks for any input!
