    Hey,

    I have been medically disqualified and know that I will need a conditional appointment in order to go to USNA. How would I be notified, if at all, if I get a conditional, since it is not the same as an appointment?

    Thanks!!

    When did you find out being DQ? Did you ask your BGO or AC?

    I found out in November. My portal says "Pending Waiver Submission/Review by USNA"

    Yeah, both, they both only said that I would need a conditional.

    Your portal would change and probably reflect an LOA with the condition being you need to be cleared medically

    Is there a reason beside not having a TWE you think that might happen?

    Have you researched your DQ to find out if it is frequently waivered?

    Thanks for the info!

    I feel as if I have a good chance of receiving an appointment because I am from a district where my MOC typically gets 8-9 nominees in and there are many rejections already. Of course, you never know.

    My DQ is almost always waivered (color deficiency that is almost always waivered and a hip injury/surgery that my surgeon, GP, and PT have all cleared me on).
