My son called tonight. He's only 9 days in and he called to get me to email a statement about ADD he was diagnosed with back in 4th grade and quit taking meds for in 7th grade. He excelled in high school graduating with honors and an advanced diploma. The day after the "I'm here" call, he called to ask me about the ADD from years ago. Now here we are 8 days later and another call. Is this typical?
Yes, if he didn't disclose the ADD until he got to BC, yes, this is typical.
Actually, it was disclosed to his recruiter. The recruiter tried to track down the doctor but she has since retired. I filled out a statement with the recruiter letting them know he's been off meds since 2006.
They will check things out to be sure that he had any waivers he needed and that everything was disclosed that should have been ahead of time and that nothing will cause a problem for him at BC or in the future.
He called today and we were able to talk for almost 20 minutes. He said that he has an appt. later in the week for an eval. Hoping all goes well. Hoping he's able to stay on target for PIR.
Have you gotten an update. My son leaves at the end of March. He, too, is ADD and has been off meds since he was a sophomore in HS- he will be 19 in July. All of the info has been disclosed of course. Just curious...
rmj79, They tested him a couple of days ago. He's good to go! We just found out today when he called home.
We disclosed everything as well. Didn't want anything holding him back or there being a problem later on. I think the big issue was that his Dr. is retired and the medical history is no where to be found. He didn't have a Dr. to sign off on him so we filled out forms and such way back in the summer.
I'm really confused. My son is in the same boat. How did you get Contact info to send the medical documentation?
