    I am appointed in need of medical waiver for accutane waiver. I have talked to the waiver authorities at USNA and they said that it needs approved by one more doctor, then the dean, and then the superintendent, insinuating that it has been approved by other doctors. Considering this, is there any reason why I should not get the waiver?

    It really depends on when you are supposed to discontinue the Accutane. If it is before I-Day, and all your results have been normal, then I don't know why it wouldn't be approved. If you are not supposed to discontinue the Accutane until after I-Day, or your lab results have been abnormal, or the acne isn't clearing up, then you may have some issues.
