Hello all. I am a senior in high school and in addition to applying for ROTC scholarships for college, I also signed my DEP enlistment with the Air Force as one of my backup plans. I went to MEPS, took the ASVAB, went through medical, and swore into the DEP all that fun stuff. Now if I receive an ROTC scholarship, or just want to go to college and do ROTC even if I do not get a scholarship, then I can still DEP-out of the enlistment and go through ROTC for an officer career. My main question is, how does the MEPS physical compare to DoDMERB, what's the same/different? Another question I have is if I DEP-out and do ROTC instead, will my DoDMERB answers have to match up to my MEPS physical answers/documentation? And will my MEPS physical still be in the system as part of my military medical history, or will it just be (for a lack of a better phrase) tossed out because I would no longer be enlisting and DoDMERB will apply to ROTC and my officer career? Thank you all in advance.
