    About 20 minutes ago I checked my DoDMERB application status online and was surprised to find I have been DQ'd for a "History of mood disorder" (D231.10). I knew this was a possibility, as I just submitted my Remedial documents last week.

    I have no idea how the waiver process works, but I hope to get everything in order as soon as possible, because I have a scholarship waiting for me and I will need the money.

    I have two questions:

    1. What do I need to do to get my waiver process on track?

    2. What are my chances of being accepted? I experienced situational depression for less than six months and was prescribed low strength medication. I saw a therapist after this episode to conduct a sort of personal inventory, but throughout our meetings and throughout my "depression," I was completely functional. All of this happened 3 years ago. Prior to my singular episode and in the years since, I haven't experienced a SINGLE day of "depression." Had I known it would've caused such waves, I would've never gone through any of the precautionary treatment. The therapist I visited told me to have them contact him if there were any problems, because he doesn't doubt my ability to serve.

    Any insight whatsoever is gladly received.

    Thank you all.

    Since its already showing your DQ status online, your letter stating that same fact is probably already in the mail. When it comes, if there is anything else it says you should do (if I remember correctly from my son's, it said we could send in any additional paperwork relating to the condition that we hadn't already sent), do it immediately. But then it will be just be a matter of waiting. Whichever branch of the military (army, navy, air force) you applied to for a scholarship will now have the option to review and possibly grant a waiver for your DQ. Its out of DoDMERB's hands and that branch of military is now in control. The letter will probably state who is now reviewing it. Good luck.
