    I have received a nomination for the USAFA and the USNA and my applications are both complete. However I have not had my physical yet. Can I be notified of a conditional appointment since I have not been cleared medically yet??

    What you could get is an LOA stating you will receive an appointment if you pass medical and get a nomination. However, it is really late for any more of those to go out. You need to get your DODMERB exams completed ASAP or you will have no chance for an appointment. The sooner the better because, as you can see, there can be all kinds of issues that pop up and some may take months to handle.

    I agree that you should get your physical done ASAP! There are so many stories, and we lived one last year with our DD, that you go into it thinking there won't be any issue at all and then you are blindsided with remedials, or DQ and needing a waiver. Ultimately, there are deadlines that the academies have, that if you aren't medically qualified by whatever their dates are, that you won't get the appointment. They won't hold your file open indefinitely, even if they really like you. Our DS was sent an LOA from USNA last month, with the only pending stipulation of becoming medically qualified. Soon thereafter, he was cleared after completing his remedial requests, and then he got the news of his appointment. (He actually received the call of his appointment, even before he got the LOA in the mail, as it was all happening quickly). Originally, we thought he would be DQ and have to go through the waiver process.
