    I've got a 32 ACT, a 3.77 GPA, 8 Varsity Letters in three sports, and thats just the beginning of my list. I've been deemed competitive by all three service academies, and all three have requested a waiver.

    I've had a "history of anaphylaxis due to an allergic reaction"

    In short, I had a minor reaction to peanuts, and my parents had it listed as anaphylaxis so it would fall under insurance.

    I just got word that my waiver was denied from U.S.M.A. I haven't heard from the other two, but I'm expecting the same.

    How would I go about appealing this denial, and what are the odds of getting my waiver?

    All three? :oops:

    There are five service academies.

    Which "other" two are you talking about? :scratch:

    Sorry about that. All three that I applied to. USMA, USNA, USAFA.

    The other two as in USNA and USAFA.

    I'm sure Mr Mullen will want to consult with you directly (when you send him your full name and the last 4 digits of your SS number) but until then I can quote one of his earlier posts about peanut allergies:

    EvanHendler - I'm sure you're not in a position for a sense of humor, but what Luigi59 was referring to was there are 5 Service Academies....USMA, USNA, USAFA, USCGA, and USMMA:smile:

    I'm able to figure out who you are, your phone number, and your email address. I will reply privately.:thumb:

    For the other readers....when you're in the DoDMERB section, your ACT/SATs, scholastic and athletic achievements, your extra cirricular activities, etc, "usually" have no bearing on your medical qualifications.
