Hello everybody, I am new to this forum but have seen a number of helpful posts about allergies and waivers. I have a question about waivers for a DQ due to a tree nut allergy and an astigmatism in excess of 3.00 diopters. A bit of context: I am a three year AROTC winner and a waiver was...
I have a history of strabismus (crossing of the eyes). I have had a strabismus surgery twice in the last 3 years (in 2018 at 15 years old & in 2020 when I was 17 years old). My last surgery was just now a year ago.
Since the last surgery I have not had any issues with double vision, only at the...
To explain my situation. When I was younger I was diagnosed and given medication for ADHD and took that medication for a while. December of 2018 was the date of my last prescription (although I stopped taking it in like august of that year). So this month is my 2-year point of no meds. I NEVER...
I was medically disqualified by DODMERB on September 15th. I completed my USAFA application on October 18th. On average, how long after application completion will USAFA request a waiver? The Candidate Booklet reads, "If you are competitive for an appointment to the Air Force Academy or one of...
I just got an email and it says "We regret to inform you that you have not been selected to receive an appointment."
I'll be honest, I am very disappointed with this. I am assuming that I was not given an appointment because of me still being medically disqualified.
This is kinda funny, but I...

Started my Re-enlisting process. Went to MEPS for asvab, All great across the board.
At MEPS an staff mentioned as to why I wasn’t going officer with since I had my bachelors and the scores were fine.

A month ago my recruiter underwent my medical waiver hypothyroidism. My condition is completely controlled by medications. I can do everything I did before having this condition is as if I did not have the only thing that I should take my medicine every morning so that it...
Hi I am a second year on-campus, non-scholarship, ROTC cadet and DODMERB DQ'd me a couple of months ago for having "a history of atopic dermatitis or eczema after 12th birthday." I misdiagnosed myself and rushed through the DODMERB questionnaire stating that I had a small case of eczema a month...
I am currently in the process of applying to the USNA and the USMMA, I have completed every step and the last thing I needed was to be cleared by DODMERB. They had flagged me for having a history with psoriasis. In reality I have a mild case of psoriasis that isn't visible, my...
Hi, I'm 37 years old and so glad that the cutting age changed, but I need to do something fast and the right way because I don't have time. I did my first-time AFOQT test in 2015, I didn't know I could only do it twice, so I wasn't prepared and on my second time, I got some food poisoning and...
Hello, so I received my LOA recently and have already been asked to go to a paid visit to West Point for later this month (yayy), which is great and all but I'm very nervous about being medically disqualified. I have two conditions that I know for sure are grounds for disqualification but I was...
I am trying to enlist in the US Army. My recruiter had submitted waivers for some surgeries I had when I was younger. They got approved but he "forgot" to put in a Med form for a hernia I had repaired. I asked if he could add it and he told me that I could only submit one waiver and I was just...
So, first and foremost, Hello to all who will be reading this post. This post is pretty much about my story and thoughts on what anyone thinks. To start, I must remind you all that nobody is perfect and we all have made decisions that we are not proud of, but to contradict that statement, I do...
Just found out that my waiver was granted and that I am now medically qualified. This was the last thing that I needed to be "3Q". I admit that I was caught off guard when I saw the good news. Guess I had become used to opening the portal every week and seeing "Waiver requested". For any future...
I was DQ'ed on the 25th, and my applicant page say Waiver Pending Waiver Submission/Review. But on my West Point portal still just says Remedial (Jan. 16, 2019). How long will it take for West Point to get my DQ?
Also, I believe there to be an error with DoDMerb because on my applicant page the...
