    I was notified that I was medically disqualified for USAFA due to a food allergy, and that a waiver was not to be pursued. This was in early March (Mar 3). My USAFA application was closed, and I accepted the fact that I would not be attending the academy. I have since accepted an AFROTC scholarship (for which I received a waiver) and accepted enrollment at another university.

    Today, I just got an update in my USAFA portal that they are pursuing a medical waiver for me. Has anyone ever heard of this happening, and why do you think they would change their mind like this, this late in the game? I'm a little flustered, having essentially committed to the ROTC path.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    It usually means that they want you if they are asking for a waiver. And since AFROTC uses DoDMERB, you already have all the information in to them. My suspicion and IMNHO is that someone declined an appointment and you are next on the list.

    Sounds like an appointment for you is a real possibility. As others have said throughout this time of appointments and TWEs, it's not over until its over. I hope that you receive the opportunity to choose between AFROTC and USAFA. Both good routes to becoming an AF officer, just along different paths.
