    BR2011,

    Everything you've listed are considered "soft disqualifications" for USAFA. There is no waiver needed. They break their medical qualifications into 3 categories, Potential Pilot Qualified, Potential Navigator Qualified and Commission Qualified. If everything else on the medical exam is good you will be found medically qualified, and Potential Navigator Qualified (PNQ).
