    How would one request a rebuttal on a DoDMERB disqualification?

    You then end up sending a waiver request to the "waiver authority" which is usually the service academy. Basically all you have to do is follow their instructions they give you which usually include sending a bunch of documentation.

    If you feel that your DQ is in error - then write a letter to DODMERB. In the letter detail why you feel the DQ is in error and add any supporting evidence - e.g. - medical records and/or letters from physicians etc.

    Dodmerb will take your rebuttal into consideration. If - after considering the evidence - they can remove the DQ; they will.
    If the DQ stands - your letter and all other information will be forwarded to the waiver authorities.

    It's my understanding that now, the applicants do not need to request a waiver - that is done for you by the commissioning program to which you have applied.

    Please contact Dodmerb and follow up on everything that you send them. The good folks there can also tell you the status of your case, specifically why you are DQ's and the process.
    Each case is very individual, so speculation is difficult. Good Luck.
