    As stated many times before...each is reviewed on a case by case basis. There is nothing or no one on the Forums that can answer the question as it will likely work/not work for you. And more importantly, as I told you earlier today, send me your records...:thumb:

    Well yes, I completely understand it is a case by case scenario. This topic wasn't directed at whether or not it would work out for me, but whether or it something like this has actually happened to anyone. Because being armed with the knowledge that someone has come out of this process with a waiver granted will make me a little less hopeless about my case because I would know that someone out there has at least been successful.

    The point Mr. Mullen is trying to make is that, even if historically 99.9% of people with your condition get a waiver (or don't get one), that doesn't mean you will or won't. Thus, you really shouldn't feel better (or worse) based on the "odds," because these aren't odds -- they are individualized determinations.

    As painful and difficult as it is, you have to work through the process yourself -- with Mr. Mullen's help, if you'll let him.

    intel - I understand your frustrations and they are felt my many. I remember when my own daughter was DQ'd, like you we knew she would be and she didn't know if she should get her hopes up or even go through with the applications.

    Unfortunately, that is how the process works. What you need to do is pay attention to Mr Mullen and have faith in him. He is your best advice at this point.

    Perhaps I didn't understand it to the extent that I thought. Thanks for the response!
