Waiver Chances

Hello, I have a few questions concerning my waiver possibility. I was recently disqualified for having a history of anaphylaxis to stinging insects. In addition, I heard that getting a waiver for anaphylaxis in general is pretty tough. I was wondering if anyone happened to know a ROTC cadet that got a waiver for such instance. Lastly, does being a scholarship recipient help at all in the waiver process? Thanks.
No, being a scholarship winner does not affect the waiver process. The only thing that is factored is that will being in the military put you or others at risk. If you suffer from anaphylaxis, you most likely will not got a waiver, as you could die from that specific insect sting. The military won't risk that. I am not a doctor, so you should still try to get a waiver, however you should have a plan B in place.

EDIT: I just saw that you have previous posts asking about your allergy. Now you say that you suffer from anaphylaxis, and previously you said you were never diagnosed with an allergy, just that you got hives from fire ants. If you want an accurate answer, you have to provide accurate facts.
