    Alright, so I'm applying for an Army ROTC scholarship, and I have to have a medical exam soon. On the paper I'm supposed to give to the examiner, it says:

    1) Review Medical History, DD Form 2492
    2) Audiogram
    3) Urine Collection - URINE DIPSTICK ONLY - DO NOT SENT SPECIMEN TO LAB
    4) Reading Aloud Test
    5) Basic Physical, DD Form 2351

    Would the urine collection likely screen for drugs as well? I have been smoking for the past 5 weeks, 4-5 times the past 2 weeks, 1-2 times the 3 weeks before that. The last time was this past Saturday. I'm 6'5" 260lbs, so I've got a good amount of fat on me too. If that urine collection includes a drug test, how long should I wait? I've been drinking 2-3 gallons of water a day, and doing some light excersize.

    The urine is just for a sodium test. Go ahead and smoke up.

    Oh btw: you better drop the drugs. Besides it showing a huge moral conflict of interest; I have been on AD for 8 months now, and I have been tested 4 times for drugs.

    Being an Officer is not a job, it is a profession. There are other reasons why we are a profession, but a big reason is we police ourselves. If you get commissioned and fail a drug test...well let's just say McDonalds will probably pass on your application.
