Hello and thanks for helping. What can we do to reverse the 'Waiver Denied status'? My son just got word from USNA that the medical waiver was not granted for his back surgery for a herniated disk from a football injury. Surgery was 8/07. DODMERB requested a 6 month post-op report by their orthopedic specialist (Feb. 08) which was an A+ report. He is back into full physical mobility, captain of the lacrosse team, starter Goalie and not a hint of past pain. My calls are already in to USNA. but what more should I expect to do? Is it likely that they will reverse this decision? Do they allow the student to come to Annapolis for on-site medical reviews to prove their physical condition?
