I received an appointment to the USMMA yesterday conditional on medical qualifications. I know I need two waivers, one for hyperthyroidism and one for ADHD. My question is, why would they give me an appointment if they don’t know I can be qualified medically? Why not wait until they know I am medically qualified then send me an appointment. I have been trying to come up with some possible reasons. The first I thought about was that they just want to keep candidates as up to date as possible. Let the candidate know that they had an appointment. I also considered that the appointment process could be completely separate from the medical issues, which they are not involved in it and do not consider them. I received an email in early January from a Lieutenant at the USMMA involved in the waiver process. They asked me about my SATs and if I had any special accommodations, which I didn’t. This in itself tends to make me think that the appointment process and the medical waiver process are completely separate. If they were together, wouldn’t they already have things like my SAT scores? I emailed the Lieutenant again today saying I received an appointment conditional on medical qualifications and asked them if there was anything else they might need. Anyway, I guess I’m just looking for similar experiences, words of advice, that sort of thing.
