I played soccer in college and my senior year I had to quit playing due to a a neck injury (c-7 vertebrate slightly protruding into my spinal cord and mild degenerative disc disease). I wrote about this in my personal statement. I just got this email from USUHS today: At this stage in the review process, the Admissions Committee has found your package fairly competitive and is interested in getting better acquainted with you. This is usually accomplished by inviting you to interview. However, in your application you listed a medical condition that will probably be disqualified by the Department of Defense Medical Examination Review Board (DODMERB). At USU, we recognize the high costs associated with attending medical school interviews andwanted to make you fully aware of the possibilities of disqualification so that you can make an informed decision regarding your application. We are able to request a waiver from the Pentagon for those who are recommended for acceptance and would do thus in your case should you choose to continue with the application process. If you are interested in coming to the University for interview (dates and times will be conisidered at a later date), you should respond to my message as soon as possible. Please remember that everyone must meet commissioning standards and there are no guarantees that any waivers will be granted. What do you guys think? Anyone had any experience similar to this? Also, I've been considering applying for military scholarship, do they have the same standards regarding phyiscal health?
