    I received my letter saying I was granted a waiver for asthma. I never took any additional tests to clear me of this and was wondering if it is common to be cleared without doing anything. I also was wondering if now my application will be reviewed because I have the waiver and will be triple qualified or if my application was reviewed prior to my waiver being granted? A final question I have is whether I will receive a letter saying I am triple qualified or is it assumed?

    I'm moving this to the DODMERB forum where Larry Mullen can probably answer it. . . . Never mind. Looks like he already has. And yes, you should get a letter saying you are triple Q'ed. However, this is a very busy time for USNA Admissions, so don't panic if you don't get a letter right away. They know where you stand on quals.

    Congrats!
    All waivers are individually based.
    Medical is INDEPENDENT of the Admissions process. Like a nomination, you must have it (DoDMERB MEETS standards OR waived), but it has no bearing on selection at this point in time
    It sounds like the only item you are awaiting is an offer of appointemnt. That said, if you have additional questions, U may email me at Larry.Mullen@dodmerb.tma.osd.mil. Provide full name and last 4 SSN. I can assist U better from there :thumb:

    Hello Cbenner,

    Congrats on your qualification/waiver! I was seen by a pediatrician for bad cough/flu - and without ever testing for asthma, they gave me steroids/inhaler and antibiotics. It was only a couple times over several years - each time it was antibiotics fixed it (no breathing probs). Unfortunately my med records are flagged with athma >age 13. Was your waiver granted for "asthma" type issues greater than age13? Wondering what my chances of a waiver are.... Thanks.
