Due to unforseen issues at home, I might not be able to attend the Naval Academy (as I might not be graduating High School). Does anyone know if the DODMERB medical physical also applies for medical qualifications for enlisting?

Thanks so much!

Sorry to hear that. Have you accepted an appointment yet?

TWinter - If you still WANT to attend USNA, regardless of what is happening at home, I suggest you call and speak with the CGO at USNA.
These folks are professionals who can help you and see that you can be there for I-day. You also should speak with your guidance counselor at your high school, if you have not already.

To answer the question - DoDMERB does not apply for enlisting. They do take a physical but it is administered differently.

An update to those still concerned: (thanks for the PMs)

I am currently working with the administration, and I submitted the following plan for them to forgive me 100% of tuition in return for:

Administrative (ie paperwork) help during Spring Break and every Weekend.
Maintaining a 3.5 GPA and a 36 on the IB Exams.

So far, they seem to be quite pleased with the offer, but I have a few holdouts who will need to be swayed. It's promising to be a short but hard fought campaign, as the final decision must be made by March 1st (final due date for some IB thing or another).


Wish me luck guys!

I'm guessing he's talking about tuition @ a private high school, and TWinter, you sound like a total champ, and a creative one. The Academy will be lucky to have you.

Twinter,

This appointment ought not be relinquished without exploring other options. You are not passing on dessert. Make it happen if you are able, despite obstacles.

Twinter, if you are in a private school and can't remain there due to tuition costs, is there anyway you could transfer to public school for the remainder of senior year and graduate? Is there any way you already have enough credits to get your diploma now? I hope you will accept your appointment and be able to work this graduation thing out. I hope I am not out of line making these suggestions. Hope to see you on I-Day!

As a poster above said, if you really want to attend USNA, contact Candidate Guidance (Admissions) at USNA and discuss the situation with them. They are your best resource on an issue such as this.
