    I applied to 4 academies and have gotten into 2 now but am extremely dssapointed to find out I was disqualified for being allergic to bees. I am in the process of trying to get a waiver but it is proving very difficult. I am starting this program that will cure me of my allergy by the time I'm a 2nd year. Also, I have been stung 6 times and it is only the last time I had a severe reaction but treated it fine with benadryl My doctor prescribed an epipen just in case I have another more severe episode.
    Is it possible to get temporary waiver if I can prove my allergy will be cured in 3 years?
    Will they give me a waiver if I submit documentation that it does not affect my breathing and the epipen is just a precaution?

    I've never heard of a temporary waiver--you're sort of in a tough spot right now. You'll just need to wait for the academies to decide whether to waiver you based on the information they have. If there is any information concerning your allergy that hasn't been submitted for them to consider, make sure to get that in ASAP. There should have been contact info in your remedial/DQ letters (at least there was last year when my son was initially DQ'd). Good luck.
