From Europe to West Point (I hope)

Dyslexia limited to advanced math and highly compensated, how many chances of being rejected? How many chances for a waiver?
I have a very mild form that interests only advanced math, I need no accommodation but the Italian law doesn’t allow me to refuse the IEP (I have a IEP whit suggestions but not mandatory accommodations), I only need more effort to study math and the use of the calculator for big problems and/or a white sheet of paper to write on. ( I can easily solve problems whit logical solutions and statistics, but I need more time and effort to study arguments like quadratic equations, rational expressions, or proportions)I have dyslexia. Can you explain "limited to advanced math and highly compensated"?
I'm applying to USMA 2026I have dyslexia. Can you explain "limited to advanced math and highly compensated"?
Ok, thank you very much

I'm happy that even for those who have dyslexia there's hope to be accepted into service academies

Wow, that's great, congrats for making it, your stories give me hope there's a chanceI have dyscalculia. I can do business math and medical math and use a calculator but when they started using letters instead of numbers I was done. Algebraic formulas to me look like a jumbled mess. As a kid I compensated for my reading disability by reading a lot. My grandmother had a set of World Book encyclopedias and I read then constantly. I could tell you the 1973 GDP for Zimbabwe. The second biggest reason I wanted to join the Navy was to visit the countries I had read about. I actually got to the point of a type of speed reading where I can read a page forward and backward at the same time kind of like a human scanner. That sounds weird I’m sure but that’s the best I can explain it.
