    I completed my application and DODmerb around mid-December. However I failed the hearing exam - I've had minor hearing loss since I was about 5. It's not that big of an issue, as I have gotten great grades and excelled in school (ranked 6 of 331). My SATs were average- 1250 2 part 690 M, 560 CR. My CFA scores were also a little average. However I had a great BGO interview, my teacher recommendations were good, I have several extracurricular clubs and varsity letters, and I wrote a good and honest essay. I was wondering what the chances of recieving a hearing waiver and how long does it take to get one. It's been almost a month since the test, and the status hasn't changed. I have also not received any notification of being tested again. Thanks!

    Does your Dodmerb portal say Pending Waiver Review, or have you seen nothing on your USNA portal under the Medical Exam section. For example, I received a status of "Qualified" under agency of US Naval Academy on DoDMERB website 1 week ago, however nothing is updated on USNA portal yet. You may want to contact your regional counselor. He/She can probably give you are more definite answer as to whether you are in the running to receive a waiver.
