If it would affect your motor skills / general function, I would have though it might have some affect yer. But at the same time most medicines will not do this.

Best thing to do is have a chat with a recruiting officer / your doctor

- Never take anything for face value, never trust the system and never put up with an answer that you don't agree with. It's about time people realised the truth of this world.



CLICK IT NAO!!!

I'm pretty sure it's a Medical DQ. Which means.. sorry.. you can't join up. >_>
Sorry if this crushes your dreams.

(EDIT)
I've just checked.
Both ADHD and Bipolar Disorder are both disqualifiers from the U.S. military. (I'm assuming you mean the U.S. military because your Location states Ohio)

Or Google your question.

In your case having a disorder may have less chances of being in a military school. Top priority is which you must be physically fit.

But there is no harm in trying if you want to enter a military school. Here is for you to read regarding Boys Military Schools:
