Hey all. I broke me arm last week during basketball practice. I didn't need surgery and am in a cast now. Doc said I should be cleared for full activity in April after spending 6 weeks in the cast. I emailed DODMERB and the AFA/USNA. The USNA said they are going to review my application without regard to my medical status. However, I just received a letter from DODMERB saying I don't meet the medical standards for the AFA. I have not sent them any medical report (I don't have one yet), so I don't understand how they can DQ me for this. They have no information on the severity of the injury. But most importantly, is this it? After the years and years of hard work for the academy will this knock me out? I will without a doubt reapply next year, but the prospect of going somewhere else for a year and then doing this whole thing over again does not appeal to me. I know it really depends on everyone's situation, but is this something that has been wavered in the past for others?
