So my biggest concern right now about joining ROTC is I'm trying to get a contract as soon as possible. I'm an incoming freshman and SF State, and the things that's worrying me is my eyesight. It's terrible...and the thing is DoDMERB is like 10x harder on medical conditions compared to meps. I'd kill to be an officer but my eyesight is 20/1000, and I'm pretty sure it's correctable to 20/20, last time I got checked at a physical i got 20/40 in both eyes with a out dated prescription, and my astigmatism is somewhere around the limits for ROTC. It's like -3.25 or something. I've had asthma before but that was like when I was 8, never got new prescriptions after that, didn't touch my inhaler since 4th grade. I'm not worried about the asthma though my biggest question is, do my eyes sound waiverable? It says on the medical qualifications anything -/+ 3.00 isn't standard for ROTC, is that a PDQ? Or are these things waiverable? I wear glasses but they're strong. Also was curious about HPSP, would it be easier to get in through that route because HPSP goes through MEPS and their standards aren't as high as DoDMERB. I want to go into army ROTC with no scholarship so I can SMP sophomore year or my junior year.
