    My son's exam was in August, remedial in late November (passed), remedial received by DoDMERB in early Dec, send to West Point and sitting at West Point since. We've contact the regional liason and he confirmed the documentation from DoDMERB was waiting review by the WP Docs. We've contacted Mr. Mullen and although he's been a tremendous resource the ball is no longer in his court. We know the remedial proved no problems so it should be a "go."
    Question is, how long can this take before WP approves the waiver and we are notified? Has anyone else experienced this?

    Us too

    My son is in a very similar position, he has been waiting since October for waiver to USMA. He received a waiver to USNA within a matter of weeks. Question is will USMA wait for the outcome of the waiver before giving an appointment to the next candidate?

    Thanks. At least it now appears the wait may not be isolated.

    The medical issues are usually NOT the only issue. An applicant has to be reviewed by the Admissions Committe first, to determine an applicant's competitiveness for an offer of appointment. UNTIL that occurs, Admissions doesn't even request medical waiver consideration

    Thanks Mr. Mullen.
    Via email (early Dec.) he was told by WP a waiver request would be submitted as soon as the official decision came from DoDMERB which was posted in early Jan.
    I feel confident there are not any outstanding issues. I think it's probably sheer volume the surgeon is dealing with.
