DS recieved a letter from USMA yesterday that stated that his height/weight number was out of standard based on his DODMERB physical. According to the chart they sent, he was one pound over the max. He's 5'10' 3/4 which is 5'10" according to the Army. If they had used 5'11 or split the difference, he would have been in standard. I have read on these forums that there is no weight cut off for USMA. But now, according to this letter he has to go to a doctor (more money) to get his body fat measured and then will have until February to meet standard or br deemed disqualified for USMA. His portal says he is medially qualified and he received a letter that said he was fully qualified academically and physically. Is 3Q now a 4Q process? I am not too concerned about his meeting the standard since his DODMERB physical was at the end of the summer, just before his pre-season atheletic workouts began. He's at least 5 pounds lighter now and his fat % is well under 20% and will be even more so by February - peak time for his sport. I am more annoyed that this is more scheduling, more time out of school for the appointment and more $$. I searched the forums and didn't see any mention of such a letter. Has anyone else dealt with this? FWIW, the letter was signed by the minority admissions officer. Could this be an extra step only for candidates from certain ethnic groups due to race-related risk factors?
