My son and I just found out tonight that he was disqualified for hearing loss. He has a pending application with West Point, the Army ROTC scholarship, and the Air Force Academy. To say he is disappointed is an understatement. He has completed the majority of his application, with the exception of submitting his CFA. (He is still in training to get the best possible results.) We understand that West Point will request a waiver if he is competitive, but at this point, we'd like to do something. Should I take him somewhere to get another hearing test? Should he contact his Regional Commander and request a waiver? (At a recent information session, the RC said that he would only request a waiver if the candidate is competitive and timely, in that it is not too late for a waiver.) I think he is competitive, but I'm not quite sure what they would be looking for. My son has a 4.0 weighted GPA and 1370 SAT for Math and Critical Reading.
