    Hi all,
    I have a relative with OCD and generalized anxiety who is looking at applying to USAFA. I've read several times that USAFA NEVER grants waivers for anything regarding anxiety disorders. Is this true? Mr. Mullen's responses to some posts on this forum have suggested otherwise.
    Many thanks

    Believe Mr. Mullen. He knows his stuff. My son is one of his satisfied customers, and we are among the hundreds (thousands...wait MILLIONS...ok hundreds for sure) of those who were patiently helped by his expert advice and counsel.

    And where did you read that? Just curious.

    The one truth about waivers is never say never. In my 5 years at DoDMERB I was suprised at least once a month by a waiver that was granted that I was sure would not be. If this relative is serious about applying to USAFA, have them start the application process.

    Once they have taken the DoDMERB physical have them contact Mr. Mullen.
