    I received an LOA from USMA in early September. I was then informed I was medically dq'd, but that a waiver was requested. Unfortunately DODMERB denied my waiver because they don't give waivers for a history of eating disorders. I never had an eating disorder. It was a mistake my doctors made and even they will admit it. I have been in contact with my admissions officer, and he says it will be very difficult to over turn a denied waiver, but he is trying. I have also applied to ROTC. I'm wondering if I can give them any info before they deny me a waiver?

    If it's definitely a mistake, have your doctors write a rebuttal. With strong evidence that you've never had such a condition and that the DQ was a mistake, I don't see why they wouldn't reverse the DQ decision.

    Who should I send it to though? DODMERB in general?
