    Hi all. I was appointed to USNA c/o '20 mid-December. I hairline fractured my right radius on March 5th and was proclaimed 100% healed and to resume all activities without restrictions at the beginning of this month. I am able to do push-ups, pull-ups, etc. again with no pain or problem. I know my candidate portal says to report all changes in medical status to DoDMERB--however, I did not know if I should bother reporting this if I am back to normal and it will not affect my performance in any way.
    Please advise.

    Report it. Go to a doctor and get him to write a report giving you a clean bill of health and send it all in with the initial injury report.

    The time to report is when it happened not when it healed.

    But since you didn't do that, report it now

    if they ask for an AMI submit a personal statement as well as a letter from a coach or trainer at school in addition to any medical records.

    What is an AMI?
    I have been going to PT regularly and have reports from them--should I submit those as well?

    Also, I called my medical technician and they said I would probably be disqualified but that I could get a waiver to get back in the system. How exactly does the waiver process work and is there anything else I should be doing?

    Additional Medical Information, previously known as a remedial.
    who diagnosed the fracture? they will want any records and x-ray reports
    they may send you to a doctor prior to DQ as part of the AMI.
    as a USNA candidate requesting the waiver is up to USNA.
    they get notified of the DQ and decide if they want to try to get you a waiver
    they probably will since they already appointed you and that type of injury is common, but only they know for sure.
    there is a flow chart on the DoDMERB site that shows the process.
