My DS received an LOA from USNA in October, conditional on receiving a nomination. He received his nomination last week. All is great, except he dislocated his shoulder playing lacrosse in early November. He had already been through the DODMERB exam, and was qualified prior to his injury. He notified his admissions counselor immediately when he was injured, which then generated a remedial status at DODMERB. He was advised by the admissions counselor to start sending in medical records paperwork, even though he would not have all the paperwork complete for a few months until his shoulder has healed, to start sending information to DODMERB. So, we sent in what we had so far. His status is now DQ at DODMERB. We are planning to continue to send in records as we get them, in hopes of getting a medical waiver. His doctor believes he will be fully functional well ahead of I-day. So, we are in total limbo right now. Does anyone know exactly what happens next? Is there a "drop dead date" on receiving a waiver in time for I-day? Is there anything additional that we should do? This has been pretty stressful, so any words of wisdom would be very helpful!
