    My daughter got a letter from admissions today stating that the waiver for her oral allergies has been approved. It goes on to say that "upon graduation you should expect to receive a commission in the unrestricted line as an officer of the Navy."
    She has never officially received an appointment, however I know they only seek waivers for competitive candidates.
    Is she in?

    No one here can guarantee it unless they work in that admissions office (in which case they wouldn't disclose it), but the fact that she received a waiver shows that they want her.

    Has anyone else got this kind of letter? What was your outcome?

    I certainly wouldn't jump to conclusions here. I think the point of that portion of the letter was to let her know that she'd be eligible for an unrestricted commission as opposed to a restricted one. Sometimes waivers are given but the officer must serve in a restricted position.
