    After almost ten months to the day, my DoDMERB ordeal is finally over. Army ROTC gave me a medical waiver. :smile:

    Great news. Very happy for you! This also gives hope to others awaiting a waiver for asthma. Best of luck to all awaiting waivers.

    Thanks Sheriff. I got a call today from Cadet Command. It was an admin for the surgeon. She called to ask me something, then in the middle of the call she says, wait I have it right here. She was referring to the remedial test results AFROTC asked for. (they had granted a waiver already)

    I emailed AROTC a copy as well a while back. I politely asked what the current time frame was. She said I should here something in the next 96 hours. That's pretty specific. They said they didn't need him to take any additional tests, they had what they needed.

    So, we'll see if that's a good sign or a bad sign. I'll keep you posted!

    Sounds exactly like my case. I was told yesterday morning I'd know whether or not I was granted a waiver by Friday, and my status was updated to "waiver granted" that afternoon. If you've already got a waiver for AFROTC, you'll probably get one for Army. A spirometry test is a spirometry test. :thumb:

    I certainly hope the Army waiver is granted. However, what is waivered for one branch is NOT automatically waivered by another. Do not assume that is always the case.

    Correct, that's why I said "probably".
