I will give a short statement of my story and the order of events. September- West Point file complete and initial physical exam. November-remedial for history of shoulder instability/dislocation. December-disqualification. January 5th- nomination received. January 6th-waiver requested. THIS is where it gets fuzzy. January 10th- additional records and supporting documentation sent to DoDMERB. On January 21st, I received a notice on the DoDMERB site which said "Date Exam Reviewed", with no remedial or DQ codes. On February 1st I learned that West Point approved my waiver for the DQ shoulder condition. However, I had childhood Asthma (at least diagnosed as such) and put it in my DoDMETS file in September, stating, in full honesty, that I have not had any problems since 2006 (age 8). I am NOT asking whether or not they will ask for remedials or DQ me. I am asking, to anyone with a somewhat similar situation or having a similar experience, if they completed the review of my file on that January 21st date, or if they were acknowledging the fact that they received my shoulder documentation. To my knowledge, DoDMERB continues the reviewing of a candidate's file after a waiver has been requested by the SA. I know every case is different. But does anyone have an experience where they could share how long it took for DoDMERB to finish reviewing their file? This may also be a bad time to ask questions due to slowness from the renovating at DoDMERB, but I am extremely eager (and growing anxious) to get this process over with. ESPECIALLY before that April date. Thank all you hopefully future answerers and I hope to be at USMA come July!
