My son has had the dream of attending the USAFA for several years. He turns 17 this week and is in his Junior year of high school. I would appreciate some input from others that may have information related to admissions into the USAFA. The primary question for me is how his medical status will affect his chances of admission. He was diagnosed with asthma as a child. He has been on Advair for several years and still takes it daily. Until last month, he was still taking Singulair, as well. He was last treated with Prednisone (oral steroids) approx. one year ago. He uses Nasonex nasal spray daily for allergic rhinitis. He has been diagnosed with eczema, but has not required topical steroids in over a year. This has been a minor problem; however, one physician did document it as psoriasis in his chart a couple of years ago. We do not believe he has psoriasis and his new physician believes it was only eczema. How will these items affect his chances? It is time for us to begin applying for the Summer Seminar and to begin the ramp-up for the application process. I will always support my son in his dreams and aspirations, but I also want to be a realistic voice that helps him make informed decisions about what those dreams and aspirations should be. Thank you for any constructive input you can offer.
