Hi. I'm trying to join the Int Corps and first applied last December. Earlier that month I bruised my foot playing football and to be on the safe side (making sure it wasn't anything besides a bruise) I asked the doctor about it. She said it's all fine and that I just shouldn't run on it for a week. I forgot all about it until my application was deferred due to "foot pain" as a result of having this on my record. Frustrated, after a failed appeal I followed the 3 month load carriage/distance running exercise regime they set me and kept a diary as instructed. After the 3 months I reapplied and sent the diary off to the medical centre. As soon as they received it they straight up rejected my application. I don't understand why this happened as I followed everything to the letter and its very irritating as I only went to the doctors to make an effort to look after myself as I knew I had to keep myself in decent shape for army selection. Has anyone had a similar experience and what on Earth can I do? I have no idea who to talk to as my recruiter in AFCO just sends emails that aren't replied to and the army haven't sent me any explanation as to why this is happening. I don't want my whole potential career ruined by a precautionary trip to the GP over a bruise!
