    My son has applied to USAFA, USNA, USMA, USCGA in addition to NROTC and AFROTC. His DoDMERB status for USAFA, USNA, and USMA has progressed from DQ'd to Waiver granted. (He has yet to receive a nomination. Our district is late - Mid January for Congressional. No word yet from Senatorial.) USCGA is still "pending review".

    Dec. 7th my son received notification from NROTC that he was awarded a four year scholarship. As of today his DoDMERB reflects the disqualifying status. My questions are:

    1) is the ROTC review process separate from the USNA review process. In other words - is there the possibility that he could remain DQ'd for NROTC when he was granted a waiver for USNA?
    2.) Do the SA's or the ROTC review committee's have access to the applicants "granted waiver status"?

    Excited about scholarship. :smile: Nervous about possibly loosing it due to
    DQ decision....:frown:

    DoDMERB DQs and the SAs and ROTC asks for waivers. That is, USAFA asks for a waiver, USNA asks for a waiver, USMA asks for a waiver, etc.. Each entity has the option of requesting a waiver.

    Have your son contact Cadet Command (or whomever is the contact person for the scholarship) regarding a waiver from NROTC.

    Best wishes and congrats to your DS on the scholarship offer. I hope it ends well for your DS. :thumb:

    Thank you for your help. He just received today, notification of his acceptance to the Coast Guard Academy. This is a conditional appointment based on his doDMERB. Waiver had been requested but that status has not changed in at least two weeks. On his letter is a number to call. He plans on doing just that.
    Again, thank you!
