I am under the impression that obtaining a waiver for Army ROTC is unlikely given my 2 year long major depressive episode I had, in which I was medicated following the death of my father in high school. I had a lot of major life changes happened in a short period and life just slammed me down at the time, and as a minor got no say in what medication I was placed on. I have been med free for nearly 2 years and have been cleared by the same doctor who put me on the meds. He actuallly highly endorses my desire to serve, which is nice. I was never sucidal or hospialized, just needed the support. I had intially tried to go AD after high school school but got DQed on my med read when I was very upfront and honest with my pscyh history, with no opportunity to go up to MEPS or even recieve an offical disqualification. My recruiter said it was for the types of medication I was placed, and said no more, he was in the middle of PCSing and not overly helpful. It's a tough waiver climate out there these days. No other branch would touch me after that either after I disclosed what happened, so I went off to university. I have now been interacting heavily with the ROTC Batallion on my university campus and they are interested in placing me into their class and seeing about working my waiver. They feel that if I complete the standard 2 years of class and continue to do well (I carry a 3.9 GPA in school) that it is possible to potentially obtain a waiver. It would both show my ability to succeed and put more time between me and the history (we all know it isn't going away). Has anyone heard of these waivers going through? I struggle to find any instances where anyone has even been remotely successful.
