    Hi all, ok kinda long story. been working with my recruiter for a couple of months now. I'm 35 & I am getting an age waiver for that too. But also I need another waiver for thoracic kyphosis. My curve is 11 & its supposed to be 10 or under. It doesn't cause me any pain & i am in good physical condition. its just from bad posture & ergonomics on my part of history. MEPS didn't find anything else on me that would disqualify me. but i don't see why this is a big deal its only 1 number off the curve & i work in a physical job (warehouse) & as i said it has never given me problems. but MEPS disqualified me anyways. but my recruiter said that he's pushing the waiver up. My question is what are the chances of this being approved? I'm 6'1" 170lbs & iam healthy so dont see why its a huge deal.

    Thank you for your input

    Jason, this is an Academy forum. Your question is probably going to be better answered somewhere else. Apples and oranges as it were. Not sure about how MEPS deals with these things.
