    I am a plebe in the Great Class of 2018 (only 235 days until Herndon). I attended NASS, and had the joy of experiencing the full waiver application process before I secured an appointment. I can help with basic application information, or answer questions about life (based on my 3 months experience thus far).

    Are you referring to a medical waiver? If so, what were you DQ'd for and how long did the entire waiver process take? Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to answer questions!

    My SAT was 610 math, 630 reading and 640 writing. I took the ACT twice. The first time I got 27 math, 33 English, 30 reading, and 31 science. I studied hard with a prep book to retake it (and had some excellent teachers) and got a 35 math, 34 science, 30 english, and 31 reading.
    As for the DQ- I had a hornet allergy. I was undergoing immunotherapy that I started earlier in the summer. I was called by the Dean of Admissions in late December, and he asked me about AP scores and classes, summer seminar, and a couple other minor things. In mid-February, I received an LOA dependent on medical qualification. Apparently this was just a formality sent out right after the waiver was granted, as I was called by nominating sources over the next week and told that I was cleared. Its a long, rough road (even through the summer), but it's absolutely worth it when I look back. Good Luck!
