Just a little FYI- I received a waiver last Friday (3/13) via a portal update and a DODMERB update the Monday after that. This evening I received a letter in the mail from USNA officially informing me of the changed status. The notification came in a TWE - but not as a rejection, but a formal update. Thought I would forewarn any others to spare the shock and sickening feeling if found in this situation. Onwards and upwards! Don't give up the ship!
