    This is my first post on here so forgive me if there are some errors. On 1/24 I was medically DQed due to a shoulder surgery I had 2.5 years ago. I've been qualified both academically and physically so now the only remaining thing to be taken care of in an effort to be 3Qed is receiving a waiver. I have 3 nominations (2 senator, 1 MOC) so I consider myself fairly competitive. My question is, if West Point will be seeking a waiver for me, how/when would I be notified of this? If anyone has gone through the waiver experience and has some knowledge to share it would be extremely appreciated! :smile: Thank you very much

    RMS, West Point has to request the waiver. I would contact your RC immediately to find out if they have requested a waiver.

    I do not recall the exact process but my DS was initially DQ'd because of shoulder surgery from a wrestling injury. All surgical notes and physical therapy notes had to be forwarded to DODMERB. After the review, DS received a waiver. I think DS contacted DODMERB and asked what need to be done to receive a waiver. Best Wishes.

    Rms, given that most nominations are in, the RC has a pretty good idea of who will win the vacancy. If you are not one of them, they are not going to request the waiver. It is a mattered of constrained resources and trying to make sure those candidates that are likely to receive an appointment that need a waiver are considered in a timely matter. Send a short note to your RC asking if they are considering a waiver and if you should send in supporting documentation. But realize that if you are not likely to receive an appointment (or for other candidates, have one of the non-waiverable conditions), that will be the end of your application for this year and a TWE is likely to follow. Start rounding up your medical documentation on the surgery and recovery that the USMA surgeon will need to see.
