My son received an AFROTC scholarship and was not given a waiver for a hip condition he suffered when younger. He is very active, the Concorde doctor gave him a thumbs up, but the AFROTC decision maker said no - period. He then found out about the Army Helicopter Flight Program at UND, applied for a AROTC scholarship, and just got the news that he has his waiver. Different branches and each academy have their own decision makers. Don't give up if one says no - PERIOD!
