I am a rising senior and it has been my goal to attend a military academy for as long as I can remember. My father attended West Point and I recently found out that my peanut allergy will disqualify me. I have started the OIT process but was wondering if someone could explain my chances of passing the medical exam after reaching maintenance levels.

Based solely on the information you provided above, you will require a medical waiver from West Point.

Google "DoDMERB;" Hit "Questions on the process;" If you meet the criteria in paragraphs 11-12 ... then 15-21 and 23 will apply
They will make a risk assessment, based on the specifics of your case and where you are in the OIT process. :wiggle:
