Hi. We are waiting on our DODMERB requirements. My daughter has a conditional appointment. She has chronic hives that are controlled by XYZAL, a non-sedating medication. Her brother attends the Academy. Do we have a chance of getting a waiver? Should I hope or not hope? She has excellent qualifications and is an excellent leader. She would be a wonderful military officer. Leaning on my faith that no matter what, God knows best. Still as a mama...I have a lot of emotions.

DS says there are lots of kids at academy with waivers and I'm sure your son knows a few. A friend of my son just received his BFE for incoming class and he was granted a waiver. Unfortunately, no one on SAF knows the inner workings of the process.

Hi, Wonderfulmom, I was right there with you when my daughter found out she would be DQd for a medical condition (one she came by genetically from ME :^(. She was devastated but her AO encouraged her to apply so she did, got a conditional appointment and received a waiver. I can't speak to your daughter's condition, but hoping for the best for you. The waiting is awful!

I agree, the waiting is one of the hardest things to deal with. My DS needed two medical waivers. After jumping through some small hoops and getting the Academy the correct and requested paper work, he was granted his waiver and moved from a conditional to a full appointment. So do what they ask in a timely fashion and God willing everything will be taken care of. Good Luck.

DS was recruited athlete with LOA and the waiver process still took approximately 4 months (although it felt like an eternity). Be patient and secure a Plan B for your DD.
