    Hello all,
    I received a LOA on 10 October, 2014, and know that the first round of offers are being sent out (~500 total). All of my required work is in, but West Point had to offer me a medical waiver for some of my conditions and is still processing the waiver (they still need to make a yes/no decision).
    Will I not be able to receive an offer until the waiver is passed through, or will I be granted an offer with the condition that I pass my waiver?
    Thanks

    I wouldn't think you'd get an appointment or even a conditional appointment until the waiver is approved. You already have an LOA which is essentially a conditional appointment provided you are fully qualified including health. There's nothing more than can really give you until the waiver is granted. That's my logic anyway. Keep in mind I've been known to be wrong.... just ask my wife.

    You will not be offered an appointment until your waiver has been granted.

    Understand completely.
    DS had 2 DQs. Waiting for those waivers was definitely a test of patience.
    Hang in there.
