    You have two separate questions:

    This would be considered a rebuttal of the disqualification. If you feel the disqualification is in error, you can submit a letter to DoDMERB requesting that they review your file again, and provide information to DoDMERB that would show why the disqualification is in error.

    As for requesting a waiver, all waiver reviews by the services are automatic, so you no longer need to request the waivers.

    Hope this helps.

    the instructions are on the DODMERB site after you login, you will see the link to click on for instructions. They are different for each I believe, but for USMMA you have to request a review in writting, at the USCGA a review is automatic

    The process has just changed, so waiver processing for all service academies and ROTC programs is now automatic.

    This has just changed.

    This is the accurate information. Effective tomorrow, 1 March 09, all "medical waiver consideration" for 4 year ROTC programs is automatic if the applicant is determined by DoDMERB to NOT meet medical standards. The latter will ONLY occur if you've been/are being considered, for an offer of a scholarship. Again, it's the "medical waiver consideration" that is automatic....(no requirment for the applicant to do anything), NOT the granting of a medical waiver.

    Medical waiver consideration for all Service academies is automatic (applicant is NOT required to do anything) when DoDMERB determines the applicant does NOT meet medical standrads AND the Admissions office determines the applicant is competitive for an offer of appointment. Competitiveness, is determined by the Admissions folks. There are 4 things you MUST have in order to go to West Point, USNA, USAFA, and USMMA or you will not go: A Nomination, passing the CFA, selection by the Admissions committee (academics, extra cirricular activites, etc {all achievements listed in the Academy catalogs}), and determined to MEET medical standrads by DoDMERB or medically waived by that Service Academy. For the CGA, it is the same except there is NO nomination required...at this time.

    Most importantly, if you have questions, send me an email with the applicants full name and last 4 of their SSN to Larry.Mullen@dodmerb.tma.osd.mil:thumb:
