Along the medical qualification line, I'm working through being qualified right now too. I saw a doctor regarding the possibility of Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis when I was seven. They determined I didn't have it (as I read the medical records), but it could skunk my chances. Anyone heard of a similar case working out? I'm hopeful that if MEPS comes to a different conclusion, I can get a letter from my doctor certifying that I never had it and don't have it now and that would make a difference.
The most important thing is to have all the medical records. Have the records from that doctor's visit showing that they determined that you didn't have it. MEPS will want that. If there's anything that isn't covered in the records you have, they'll want tests before they clear you to go to MEPS. Start gathering the stuff now so that if you're selected you already have it together.
