    :confused:My son got a letter today that says he is scholastically and physically qualified but he still needs a dodmerb waiver. Does this mean if he gets his waiver he will be offered an appointment or that he continues in the process? If he does continue in the process what are his chances at this point if all the slots for our extremely competetive congressional district are taken? Thanks for any feedback.

    I got the same letter, and the week after I got my waiver my appointment was in the mailbox. It's definitely a good sign for your son.

    Thanks, we are keeping our fingers crossed. What was your GPA and SAT score and extra curriculars if you dont mind me asking?

    I am guessing that admissions has decided to seek a waiver?

    If your son is granted a medical waiver then he is eligible for an appointment. He is competitive but only admissions can tell you where he stands.

    If he is the top candidate in your congressman's district he will get that spot, as long as he gets the waiver. If he isn't the top candidate then he will still compete in the national pool of candidates.
    Have your son give his Regional commander a call - he can tell him where he stands.

    What the waiver was for also probably will make a difference. Mine was for childhood asthma.

    We are from a very competetive district in California. He got the primary for another academy (usmma) but an alternate for West Point and Annapolis. His college gpa is 3.7- Capt of football team, Varsity baseball letter and college football. He is treasurer of Christian fellowship and has been to Romania to work with the orphans. He also was selected for future business leaders in high school. He did very well on the CFA. His waiver is for a kidney stone he had in his first year of college that has cleared and no complications but we are still waiting on the waiver. He had it during finals of first semester and his gpa that semester was 3.2 but 4.0 since then. He has statistics but no calculus, couldn't fit in schedule and we know that hurts him.I am very impressed by all the kids who make it, I know what it takes for my son to even get in the running. Good Luck to all of you and thanks for the feedback.:thumb:
