    Is every condition waiverable for the service academies more specifically USNA? I have something called nf1 (abbreviated for neurofibromatosis). It is very mild yet it has a chance to get worse. That scares the military. Im in the process of getting a remedial. Have you heard of someone getting a waiver for this?

    None of us can answer that question for you unfortunately. The effect of the NF1 gene mutation is so variable from one individual to the next that I'm sure the decision for a waiver would greatly depend on your individual case. Some individuals lead completely normal lives. You may be one of those people and the only way to find out is to apply.

    Here is a document of Non-Waiverable conditions. https://www.jmu.edu/rotc/prospective-cadets/Non-waiverable medical conditions.pdf I don't know if it applies to all services. In addition, just because a condition is not listed it dosen't mean they will issue a waiver, it just means they can. And some conditions are easier than other to get a waver.

    Also, the fact that they are even asking for a remedial "could" be a good sign. If it was a slam dunk DQ why would they even waste their time and money on a remedial.
