Patience, patience, patience...... I realize its that time in the process to just be patient but wondering if others are experiencing same thing. DS has a condition that requires a waiver. The USMA portal has listed "disqualified" since exam was complete a couple of months ago. We have provided DODMERB with all of the info they have requested. The DODMERB site lists "pending USMA waiver review." When DS called DODMERB concerned about the USMA portal saying disqualified, they said the DODMERB site was a more accurate description of where he is at in the process and to not rely on the USMA portal for determining his current medical status. Does the "pending USMA waiver review" mean that it is actually being reviewed for a waiver by USMA? Or, does it mean they are determining if they want to review it? Anyone who has experienced this before - does the portal actually change to something like "waiver requested" or "waiver granted" or does it just stay as "disqualified" until a final decision is made on candidate? On the pessimistic side of things, I am assuming that the length of wait for the waiver decision is driven by how competitive the candidate's file is. If the candidate is a rock star, the waiver decision would come fast. Is this a fair assumption?
