    Good morning,

    I have been denied a waiver for a history of right hip impingement syndrome. I saw an active duty physician about it and he said I don't even have the condition and it can never return. I got the NROTC scholarship and completed the O-Week for my unit (Virginia) but dropped out of the unit after the third denial.

    I feel as if I can get back into the unit and keep my scholarship IF I can get a waiver. Does anyone know what EXACTLY I need to get this (even with the good report from the military doc) or how I can contact the BUMED waiver authority?

    Thanks!!!!

    With so much at stake, you might consider contacting CAPT/Dr. Glen Merchant. He is a former DoDMERB Director and retired Flight Surgeon/USMC pilot. He now runs a consultancy for candidates and may help you properly and accurately communicate your condition. You want to be accurate but avoid saying something that could be misconstrued.

    Yep, he's working with me, and was advising me before my previous appeal, so I'm not sure what else he can do.
