    Hey guys,
    Last year I was appointed to USAFA but unfortunately lost that appointment due to a torn ACL while playing baseball for my high school. I did everything I could to try to get a deferal to next year but they told me I had to start over and repply! Well here I am again in the application process. I had surgery to repair my ACL in May 2011 and was in physical therapy until August. My therapist has released me for physical activity and I sent all my records and a letter from my therapist to DODMERB.
    However, I am still medicaly disqualified and have been pending a waiver since August. Is there anyway to help speed up the process? Should I send anything to my USAFA counselor?
    Thanks!
    Matt

    I would contact your admissions counselor and see if they have the information. Does your DODMERB file at the following site - https://dodmerb.tricare.osd.mil/Default.aspx - show the addition of the new records? If it isn't call DODMERB. If it is then contact the AFA. My DD submitted her paperwork to DODMERB in Oct for a PENDING shoulder sugery and received the waiver from the AFA in Dec.

    Also; admissions are inclined to not budge on any issue if your application isn't 100% complete. Is everything done? Is your CFA done? Do you have a nomination? If yes for everything, then definitely contact your admissions counselor and see what they need. If you are missing anything, they won't put in for a waiver or anything as long as you are completely done with everything else. Best of luck.
