RetNavy- Our son recently received a LOA from USNA. Here, in part is what it said, "...that your guaranteed offer of appointment is contingent upon completing all of your remaining admissions requirements...by 1 March 2007 (emphasis mine)..." The Medical Qualification box is marked. His DQ is for braces which the ortho said in a letter to DoDMERB will be off by 30 April. The DoDMERB website says, "Current Medical Status: Pending Waiver Submission/Review R250.10 - Pending waiver review by USNA" Okay, here are my questions. Should my son sit tight and wait for the results of the Pending Waiver Review by USNA? Or should he be a little more proactive (not wanting to miss the 1 March deadline) and call his Admission Team as suggested in the second to last paragraph of LOA, "If you have any questions concerning your candidacy..."? He certainly doesn't want to be a bother to them, but he also doesn't want to miss this opportunity for an Appointment. Thanks, in advance, for your help.
