    I don't know if this was answered in a different thread so I thought I'd just ask here:

    I have an LOA, but I still need a nom and a medical waiver.

    A few questions: does having an LOA help in any way with getting a nomination? (Does the congressman or the nominations board see that you have an LOA?)
    My medical condition (myopia >8.00) should be waiverable as it is a common condition and my eyesight is only .37 above 8.00. Will an LOA help with expediting the waiver process?

    Thanks for your help in advance!

    The answer to the first question is answered in: "Son just got an LOA - question" thread...only a few threads below. Your MOCs should receive a copy of the LOA -- as far as being helpful, it depends. The medical waiver process should be initiated by USNA, if you were DQ'd by DODMERB. They will get in contact with you -- you should call Admissions and ask for the medical staff if you haven't heard anything in the next 2-4 weeks. As for the condition...the waiverability will be determined by Navy medical policy and ultimately, the Superintendent; how long that process could take is unknown.
