    If I am reading this correctly, you have not officially signed any paperwork due to the waiver issue. I would talk to the unit.

    We filled out a ton of paperwork when I arrived here, sir. I was even told to give them my checking account info. Not sure if this helps or not

    Not really. The p-work is probably your 597-3 contract, and 104-R academic worksheet, all on the presumption that you will receive your waiver.

    However, until you actually receive the waiver, nothing will happen.

    Here is a flow chart that illustrates the waiver process after DQ. It really rests on Cadet Command. Your cadre (ROO and PMS) can help push it along, but it will also depend on whatever AMI you have submitted to persuade them of your health.

    I had a long post, but deleted it.

    This is going to read as harsh, but you need to read it.

    TALK TO YOUR UNIT.

    Step up and show to them you are in control of your own future. I get it, maybe you are afraid to rock the boat, or seem like a whiner. However, if you walk in and ask them directly if you will get back pay they will know. You are not the 1st cadet that had waiver issues, nor will be the last.

    Now, if you have already done that, and they said "MAYBE", also understand any posters response in a positive is anecdotal at best. 2 yrs ago poster smith said yep, = 2 yrs ago.

    I hope the best for you. I just want you to understand that this is your paycheck and you need to address the source of the pay directly, not an anonymous forum. Sorry if that sounds rude, unkind or harsh.
