I’ve been thinking of applying to Virginia Tech as a cadet, however, I just have once concern, if anyone could help me out. In their handbook for incoming cadets that would “like to fully participate” in the program with or without a scholarship, it states that a DoDMERB Qualification form must be brought with you. I thought you only had that exam if you win a scholarship or commission during junior year? I was prescribed 3 or so inhalers when I was younger to help with some congestion from a cold, and it went away after that. However, at 16, I visited the doctor after my cross country coach insisted I get a checkup and I passed a PFT (spirometry test) with flying colors and the doctor said I was medically cleared of asthma, but insisted I have an inhaler just in case of the off chance it ever came back. If the DoDMERB Qualification forms state that I’m medically qualified, won’t I get dq’d for that and not have one? I don’t want to apply for an ROTC scholarship while still in high school, but I assume I must have to apply for a waiver, so my main question is how would that process work if I’d like to go into the corps of cadets as a non-scholarship cadet? How do I go about applying for a waiver without a scholarship? When would I apply for it?
