    Has anyone had this occur? I plan to attend USMA and I am waiting on USNA decision but today I received a letter that I did not receive a waiver for NROTC. UMBC's unit was my Plan B and with my backup gone, I have community college. I am slightly worried as I have turned in all my medical documents. Should I be fine?

    None of us know. Each waiver authority looks at things different. Also depends what you need a waiver for. Things like color blind have extremely limited waivers for the Navy commisioning sources while USMA looks at things differently.

    dkdino -- Congrats on gaining the NROTC scholarship offer, but very sorry to hear of the NROTC waiver denial.

    The title of the thread includes the words "Waiver Approved USNA" -- did you already receive the waiver from USNA? What about USMA?

    As hoops said, difficult for us to know. Greatly depends on what the medical issue is. I'm assuming both USMA and USNA have told you they have put you forward for a medical waiver?

    Thank you. I already received waivers for USNA and USMA last year. I was appointed to USMA and I plan to enter the Class of 2020. I have a lazy eye but my eyes are still 20/20. I think I've run out of options for the NROTC waiver since I've already turned everything in.

    Can't you still go to UMBC? Did you get admitted there?

    Is the waver good for 2 years like the Dodmerb physical?

    I do not think my family can support me to attend UMBC for 3 years. I would need a scholarship. I am a college freshmen. My dodmerb exam is good for 2 years, not the waiver.
