    My DS just received a disqualification from DoDMERB and his status says to stand by for Regional commander to determine if USMA will request a waiver. His application is complete. He has already turned in the nomination packets to the congressmen and waiting to have an interview. My question is this: at what point will the determination be made as to whether or not a waiver will be requested? After that, at what point will a determination be made whether the waiver is granted for the medical conditions specified? He had a separated shoulder from a pole vault accident his freshman year. No issues since, though. Got 21 pullups on the CFA during SLE in June and he bench presses 325 lb, so it doesn't bother him. The other issue is high frequency hearing loss in his left ear. It falls within "normal" range, but is not within DoDMERB standards.
    My older son is USMA 2018, but he passed the DoDMERB, so I don't really know what to expect. My 2020 candidate has a very strong resume, and I think he has a very good chance of getting the appointment if he can get medically qualified(waivered). Does anybody have any insight as to what he should expect?
