    Very excited to receive notice this morning that my USCGA conditionally appointed daughter's medical waiver denial was reversed and they are now recommending that a temporary waiver be granted. We understand that temporary does not mean permanent, but does it mean she will be allowed to enter the Academy on R-Day where they will see with their own eyes that she is 100% physically fit for duty, or is it more like just an official extension of the June 1 deadline for receiving medical clearance, but that will still have to be made permanent before R-Day?

    Congrats and Good Luck to her.

    Never heard of a temporary waiver before.

    R-Day is in 30 days.

    Well I guess we can't celebrate yet, though at this point "temporary waiver" feels alot better than "denial." She is fit and ready for R-day, may she be allowed to report.

    I've never heard of a temporary waiver either.
    But that is great news!
    The door is not closed yet.
    Good luck to her and keep us posted. :thumb:

    Although my son went to the AFA, I wonder if this is similar to his conditional waiver granted last year. He was initially DQ'd for a dislocation, we sent in all the paperwork for his rehab, had a current strength and range of motion study done by a physical therapist, and the waiver was granted under the condition that he would be examined by an AFA doctor on In Processing Day. If the dr. felt his joint wasn't strong enough, he would be turned back. But luckily for my son, he passed that exam with flying colors on I Day, and has just finished his first year at the AFA!

    Good luck to your daughter--hope it works out for her too!

    Congratulations! Sounds a bit like our daughters situation.... her waiver was granted to attend the USCGA. Assuming she successfully navigates her (4) years, she will then need further evaluation and would request a "permanent" waiver to join the active duty officer corps.
