    A little background:

    I completed my application back in August and was just granted a medical waiver at the end of February. My friend and I received nominations from the same congressional source. He received the primary nomination.

    As far as I know, he is triple qualified. Why would the academy consider a waiver for me now, when my medical exam was completed back in September?

    Does the academy only consider waivers for those they wish to extend an offer of appointment? Thank you for your time!

    There is probably better authority on this but this is a good sign. Even though you were not primary you got a nom and go into the NWL. From there they can charge an appointment to another source. IMHO they would not have granted a waiver this late if they did not believe you needed it (ie competitive, prayerfully an appointment).

    Smile this is good.

    +1 to 2018midmom. Also, as you point out, you think he is 3Q. He may not be. It's possible he is also waiting on a waiver or any number of things.

    Thank you both for your response. Like many on these forums, I'm just ready to know. I also wish you and your candidates the best of luck!

    If the academy is interested in you and you have a DQ from DODMERB, they will request a waiver. Congrats on getting a waiver.
