I have been trying to join the Air force, air national guard in CT for a year now, I got DQed because of some anger management issues as a child and a hospital stay. But they wanted me to take a test with a special doctor, like a psychological test basically. (If I can find the paper and the exact name I will let you know) My aunt was helping me, she just retired after 22 years in the guard. The test was originally going to cost me 3grand, so we tried the army. They flat out denied me, no test etc.

We went back to the air national guard and got the test done, and the doctor basically said he feels there is no reason why I shouldn't be able to handle basic training, schooling, etc. That everything was good to go.

My question is once we send this to me recruiter who will then send it to the air force doctor, do you think there is a good chance I will finally get accepted? I am staying positive, because the air force wanted this test done while the army didn't, and everything in the report will be positive.

The US Army is the largest service and therefore has the largest recruiting mission. If they denied you, then it is my opinion that you don't have much of a chance. Now I say that based upon the fact you need a medical waiver and not necessarily what the waiver is for. When recruiting is going well, then those who require waivers have less of a chance of being able to join. That's the simple reality of it.

I agree with the above poster. The Army will take just about anyone. The Air Force is downsizing and are the most selective. It is VERY difficult to get in, especially now.

Best of luck, brah. I say go for it anyway. Maybe you'll catch a lucky break. Why not, right?

Simple answer? Sorry, no one knows for sure.

The only thing you can really do is try again. When I went in years ago there were people being disqualified all over but people were also being accepted with waivers. If you are still interested, give it another shot.
