    Hello all,

    I received my disqualification letter today in the mail. I was disqualified due to my nearsightedness (Distant Visual Acuity not correctable to 20/20).
    My status on the DODMERB website says that my status is "Pending Waiver Submission/Review". However, I have not received any kind of a waiver form electronically or through mail.
    Does this mean I have been automatically submitted for waiver review? OR will additional forms come to me that I need to fill out and send back in?

    My agency is Marine Corps ROTC.

    Thank you all very much for your time,

    Arpan_R

    What happens is this:

    Dodmerb will send the exam results to MC ROTC.
    MC ROTC will decide if they will seek a waiver - likely if you have already been offered a scholarship. This means you do not have to write a letter requesting a waiver.
    Once ROTC makes the decision to seek the waiver, they should notify you. Perhaps it's electronically now but they used to send a letter.
    Once they make the decision about the waiver - DODMERB will notify you.

    I have no idea of your chances or if they will bother to pursue the waiver -- you can call the help desk at Dodmerb and talk to them.

    I have been offered a scholarship, so I guess it looks like they'll might pursue a waiver.
    I'll do sure to do as you advised, and call the DODMERB help desk.
    Thank very much for your help!

    A watched DoDMERB never boils

    Brace yourself: Our DQ letter was dated 27 FEB and we still haven't heard a thing.
