So I was just awarded an NROTC National Scholarship for my college (Marine option). I filled out my medical forms completely honestly--which included writing that I have consumed alcohol underage. I consumed very infrequently and don't anymore. I never lost control or was caught/got in trouble. I wrote that I consumed alcohol once, nearly 10 months ago, and that I no longer do. I submitted the forms and have taken both my optometrist appt. and my medical exam, and I believe both appointments were otherwise fine. I am exceedingly nervous that I will not be able to join the NROTC Marine unit now because of that one-time experience, but I figured that the honor in honor, courage, and commitment would necessitate that I answer truthfully on the DoDMERB forms, which I refuse to regret. Does anyone have any experience or advice? I just want to know what you think will happen, if anything. I assume I will need a waiver . . . I just want to know if my scholarship and spot in the unit will likely be secure or not.
