Hello Everyone, I am (well, was) a maritime academy ROTC cadet. I started later than most so I am not a straight out of high-school 18 year old. I have been an ROTC cadet for a year now and had my heart and mind set on commissioning and active duty. In October, I was DQ'd for history of mood disorder and hematuria. The mmod and hematuria issues are all part of my distant past. My LT's seemed confident I could get a waiver. Well, today, the last day of my first year at the academy, my letter arrived. BUMED has declined my waiver for history of anxiety and hematuria. Its like they didn't even read all my records, doctors letters, and statements regarding my good health and ability to serve. The letter was literally 2 sentences long. POOF. Like that, my career is over. Doesn't matter that I'm a 4.0 honor student with Excellent PRT scores and several awards this year. I guess my questions are these; Is there any human way possible to move forward? Has anyone managed to overcome a waiver denial? Thanks for any info. My time here at the academy seems wasted if there is no way to move forward.
