    Hey! So i have been hearing a lot from people that waivers are automatically granted to the kids who have already received appointments to USNA and NAPS. Is this true?
    I thought you got your appointment and then you were put into the waiver line and then reviewed for approval or denial. :confused:

    One cannot receive an appointment until they are medically qualified. The waiver comes prior to the appointment.
    They might be told they have an appointment pending a waiver or they might have an LOA - but what you are hearing does not make sense.
    Each year, kids who have an LOA are denied an appointment when they are not medically qualified and can't receive a waiver.

    All medical waivers are processed through the admissions department and are on a case by case basis. It's very individual.

    O ok that makes sense! Yeah I am a recruited athlete so I received a conditional appointment to NAPS since i did not have an nom. People were telling me 50 different things about waivers....the majority telling me I will just automatically get one. Thank you for clarifying!

    The correct answer is: If you have a conditional appointment, you will automatically be "considered/reviewed" for a medical waiver---not that one will be granted:thumb:
