    Is it possible to be medically qualified one year but not the next? Last year when I applied I was deemed medically qualified for admission to USNA, but did not recieve a appoitment. This year I am not medically qualified. I tried contacting DODMERB but they are closed for the holidays. Is there any chance this was a mess up on their part?

    I suppose there is always a chance of either a screw up on their part, or that some medical condition that was allowed last year is no longer allowed. Do you have any medical issues or changes in your medical condition over the last year? Did you require a waiver last year?

    No waiver was required last year. I'm surprised that before they DQed me they didn't ask for additional information

    I'm confused. Medical qualifications are good for two years -- the only time status should change is if there is a change in your medical situation. For example, if you were ill or injured in the past year.

    As noted above, if a waiver was required, USNA could change their mind on granting a waiver.

    If your medical situation has not changed and no waiver was required, you should not have been DQ'ed. Follow up with DODMERB after the holidays.
