    I've been thinking of joining the Army ROTC here at ohio state university but I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis a couple of years ago. It's under control now with medication but I was wondering if having the chance to flare up would disqualify me?


    Thanks :hsd:

    Hate to say it, man. Don't tke it definitively, though. There might be waivers for this with meds. I don't know if this document is still current, though. I remember talking to an E-5 that had to get out after the first gulf war for developing it too.
