    I'm sure it has been asked hundreds of times on the forum, and I've seen many answers to the question, but nothing super straight forward. So here's the situation. I've done my medical evaluations and am waiting to hear back. The doc said there was one thing that he thinks I should get checked more in depth. I looked on DoDMERBs website and found that thing under the DQ list and possible Remedials for it. What would happen next if I hear back saying I got a DQ and/or a remedial. Correct me if i am wrong, but is a DQ waiver able by the Academy which means I do nothing, and a Remedial requires additional evaluation and/or information on your part?

    Typically there will be a remedial to confirm the condition, or history of, prior to the actual DQ.
    Of course if you are missing a limb that might go straight to DQ, no remedial.

    The DQ is issued by DODMERB based on information that they gather which can include remedials. If a DQ is issued, then it is up to the service branch to further evaluate as part of the waiver process. They can review and approve or deny or request their own remedials which are typically additional tests to assess the applicant. My DD was DQ'd for asthma but did receive a waiver from the Army. Asthma is said to be a difficult thing to get wavered but in her case, she probably shouldn't have been DQ'd for it in the first place - long story.
