I'm posting this to hopefully help out some people out there seeking a waiver for asthma to either USNA or NROTC. After several month long process and much correspondence with USNA and DoDMERB, my waiver for asthma after the age of 13 (D241.30) was granted for both. Initially, I was given a pulmonary function test(PFT) and tested negative for asthma. I then was requested to take a remedial Methacholine Challenge Test(MCT). I tested at 92% after 6 rounds of methacholine, where I believe the "passing" score is above 80%. About a month and a half later I was granted the NROTC-MO waiver(mid-april), and then a few weeks after that, a waiver to USNA(on April 26). There were many speed bumps and delays along the process. Once I began the medical process with the initial questionnaire in October, and realized how long it could take, I did everything i I could to complete all of the requirements on my end quickly, and I still just now wrapped everything up. That being said, my main advice for those now starting their applications for an academy or ROTC program next year is that, if you believe there is a possibility that you will be medically disqualified, then completing the medical side as early as possible would certainly be in your best interest. I knew I would likely be disqualified, and still waited to start until October, and it has costed my family great stress over the past few months. Good luck to all the candidates. If you have any questions about the process or specific to my situation, feel free to reply or message me directly.
