    How do you know if the Naval Academy has requested a waiver for you?

    There will be an entry in your DoCMERB portal.

    My status at Dodmerb says pending waiver submission/review what does that mean.

    My DS applied to 3 service academies. USMMA requested a waiver review and his portal reflects the entry noted below.

    Code R259.01: Applicant DQ - Waiver Authority requests additional information.

    The other two academies did not request a waiver review and he simply shows as being DQ for those institutions.

    Hope this helps.

    Waiver

    DS portal says pending waiver submission/review yet we've been told by USMMA that they requested a waiver on December 4th. Hmmmm. Wonder what's going on?

    Yeah that was my thought. Usma told us they were requesting a waiver and the status still says pending waiver/ submission review.

    They could be waiting to see if you get a nomination... I think that is what's happening in my case.

    It's a DODMERB thing. My son had it also. They requested more info, we got it for them and he was cleared. Call admissions to find out what the issue is and have Dr. Explain and send clearing info.

    Same for my DD. Got a medical disqual for an old injury, then USMA and USAFA both sent a letter right away saying that they were starting a waiver, we collected all of the paperwork and statements from the doctors and sent them in right away,...but her portal has said "pending waiver/submission review" ever since. She checks her dodmerb and academy portals several times a day and nothing has changed for about two months.

    On a related note the USCGA informed her that they are offering her a spot on the wait list for their prep school...and still no change on her portal...in fact, they never even sent a waiver request for her....weird...it is like reading tea leaves. She got a nom for USNA, USAFA and two for USMA so she is hoping that things will pick up. Her ALO called twice last night verifying info so maybe something is happening.

    Our son is at WP and flew through the dodmerb process, so we have no background on this one...

    DoDMERB Status

    The DoDMERB Status for my DS reads "Pending Waiver Submission/Review". Does that mean USNA has requested and/or is considering a waiver for my son who was medically DQ'd? Thanks for any help!
