    DS just received remedial requests from Dodmerb. Seams so late in the game but I am hoping this is a good sign for him? He has applied to all academies and they all have been silent since he was DQ for astigmatism.

    Also, anyone been given a waiver for astigmatism of 3 diopters?

    And I would think it is a very good sign. They don't send over for waivers unless they want the candidate.

    So are you saying astigmatism over 3 diopters can be waived by the academy (assuming the candidate is competitive)?

    They can waive whatever they want. But they don't send it unless they are competitive. We are still "app on file" for USMMA. DD didn't apply to any others. Look at the Dodmrb forum. Some get waivers for one thing, then the next person doesn't. There doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason to it. Good luck!

    I looked at the appointment thread. There were some on Saturdays but not Sundays.
