    My DS has had remedials requested. I know this remedial/waiver process is SLOW. Will WP make an admissions decision without him being medically qualified yet? I understand any appointment would be pending medical.

    Unfortunately, candidates need to be medically qualified in order to be considered for admission. They will not consider him for admission until he is medically qualified.

    But the DodMERB website says "no applicant will be denied admission due to DodMERB DQ"…." Waiver process will be started….." This is so confusing.

    I've never liked this wording because it is confusing.
    What DoDMERB is saying is that the SAs make the standards on which DoDMERB makes their determination of meets or does not meet standards. Therefore, the SAs DQ (since they make the standards) and DoDMERB just makes the determination based on those standards.
