    Hi there,

    So I WAS medically disqualified but just received my waiver yesterday from USAFA. I have my congressman's nomination and I applied EA but got differed (cus I was medically dq). Just wondering if since I got the waiver, that means admissions liked me enough to take me or...? I know it's not a guarantee, just wondering if it's a good sign or is indifferent? Thank you.

    Respectfully,
    Spikingeagle

    PS already asked my ALO but he is unsure also.

    A waiver is generally requested only for those people the academy considers competitive. Hang in there. It ain't over until the fat lady sings! :thumb:

    I am in the exact same boat man. I will message you when I am notified so you have some sort of feeling of what to expect, if you would like.

    Hi! I was waived for USAFA about two weeks ago and received my offer of appointment last Wednesday. I was also deferred EA because of the waiver. Getting waived is an awesome sign. :) I know the boards are meeting now, so good luck!

    My son got his waiver granted about a month ago. He was also deferred to general selection and has 2 noms. Still patiently waiting. In the meantime he got a call from a Senator yesterday and has been accepted to USMA. Hoping to hear from USAFA soon so he can make a decision!

    Classic timeframe question?

    I know that each case is different but what were a few of your wait times from the moment the academy began to pursue a waiver, to the time that it was granted?

    It will be about a month for me in about a week, and i haven't heard anything, nor did they request anymore information.

    It was a little more than 120 days from waiver request to waiver approved for our DD (for both usafa and usma).

    It looks like this week was the week to get approved. Obviously getting the waiver is a very good thing...especially since you can't get an offer if you are not medically qualified! But, we are hoping that the Academy wouldn't waste time and resources considering waivers for candidates that weren't in the running...so in that light...the "not eliminated yet" mantra is still the phrase of the day around here.:thumb:
