    do you always submit medical records at some point during process or is it all based on how you answer questionnaire whether they want them or not. I can't imagine they take your word for it

    They take your word for it because if you lie or try to obfuscate something, it will more than likely be found out later.
    That's when they tell you that you just lost your NROTC scholarship.

    They want honesty you check a box because it's in your record that has not been an issue and I may never be able to serve out country for a tree nut allergy that I had one reaction to that wasn't even anaphylactic or hives or rash when I was 8. Now I must trust their process I guess.

    yep, as above, chances are good the skeletons will emerge from the closet.

    Lieutenant, sergeant, private, whoever, reports to sick call:

    "Doc my back hurts." Really, for how long? "It started before I joined." I review the SF-93. No mention of back pain.
    "Doc, they assigned me to the paint locker today and my asthma started acting up." Really? SF-93 and sea duty screening form, nothing.
    "Doc, I can't take the small pox vaccine. I have eczema." Really, did you check YES to that on the medical history form? "HuuuH?"

    Do NOT self diagnose but DO be forthright in answering all the questions.

    If you didn't go to the doctor don't say you have something just because your Mom etc said so. [e.g. being short of breath occasionally doesn't automatically mean you have asthma etc.]

    But if you have seen a physician for symptoms you need to report the results of that diagnosis.

    Keep in mind that if this is for a Scholarship and you lie and a few years into your scholarship they find out you lied and you cannot serve then you will end up owing all that money back. It is better to be honest in your answers. As previously stated, do not self-diagnose or provide more information than they request but be honest.
