Hello everyone. Long time lurker and academy hopeful here. When I got my medical testing done this year, I was supposedly found to have a slightly less than average hearing range in my right ear. DoDMERB asked me to get it tested again and forward the results to them. My online application currently lists my medical testing as incomplete. My question to the forum is, what does this mean for me? If I test again and am still found to have slight hearing issues, am I out of the running? If I have a regular, competitive nomination and an exceptional application, what happens with waivers and what not? (I really do not understand the waiver process as well as I would like too). If my hearing is found to be slightly worse than average, is there a chance it still might be found acceptable to the academy? What if my application is not exceptional? Sorry for the block of question, but this issue I think is understandably alarming. I have heard that medical dates and failures are the biggest reason for someone to not make it to the Academies and I thought I was going to be able to dodge that bullet. Thank you very much for anyone who can help point me in the right direction and good luck to everyone applying this year!
