DoD Decision?

Hi, I was initially medically DQ'd from WP, but they requested a waiver for me and I had to send in additional information soon thereafter. This all took just a few days, but my dodmerb page now says that my exam was reviewed Feb. 28 and I have not received a final decision as to whether or not I am going to receive a waiver. Does anyone know how long it usually takes for them to make a final decision? Thanks!
Typically your DoDMERB status will change to 'pending waiver submission / review' after the exam or remedial is reviewed. The time frame for medical waivers has a huge range anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months, depending on the complexity/ severity of the medical condition.
The academies all handle this different and each has a different approval process. West Point will review the information you submitted and make the final determination.
Your West Point portal will change before your DoDMERB portal. It can take a day or it can take months. There is no way to know for sure.
