    I was wondering if anyone knows how long it takes the academy to review and issue waivers for conditional appointees. Thanks.

    Not specifically for the shots. He had seasonal allergies and they were part of the basis for his dq.

    We tell applicants to expect 6-8 weeks...our Chief Medical Officer does a preliminary review, he usually requests additional tests or medical records, he may have to request additional tests based upon what the first round of additional testing revealed, and then he still has to make a decision. It's really impossible to say how long the review process takes since each waiver is considered individually, so the disqualifying condition(s) determine the timeline.
