So I have a tattoo on the back of my neck that I've been having removed monthly for almost a year now. It's SUPER expensive and you can only go once a month (trust me, I'd go more often if I could if it meant getting this thing off sooner). I'm a college student and didn't know about USAFA when I was 18 and got the tattoo and really didn't even consider any consequences at all. I was told today that even though I've put in all the effort I possibly could, it's an immediate DQ since it's not anywhere near gone (I was told by my doctor it would take 5-8 months....it has been 10 and it's still like 2/3 there). Does anyone know if waivers have ever been issued in any case? I'm otherwise qualified in every other area and have put so much effort into this process and it sucks to know that something so tiny and insignificant can DQ me so easily. Any advice?
