    My son's dodmerb got delayed for some reason. It went back to WP for their medical review. We were told all applicants had to be medically qualified by April 15th. I know that reviews can take 90 days, if it takes this long will he still be eligible? We erected told not give up yet
    He had everything in on time and followed procedure. Do we still have a chance?

    Good Morning,
    Our son was DQ 4 weeks ago today by DoDMERB. We are still waiting on a response. Our understand is all the SA will request a waiver/or do an internal medical review if your DS/DD is competitve. Did your DS received a 2Q letter from USMA? I am in NO WAY an expert on this, but we are in the same position and hoping this Good Friday, good news is on the way. Have you contacted @MohawkArmyROTC on this forum? He seems to be a great source of credible information. Hope that helps and good luck! By the way, what state are you from?

    Nebraska...As far as I know he didn't receive a 2Q letter. He was told he would know by April 15th. He has been told his file is very strong.. he recieved his 3 nominations and went to SLEEP last summer. I'm more nerve wracked than he is.

    I have been waiting for an approved waiver since Feb 27th. I emailed my RC to see what the deadlines are and what till happen if I don't meet them. I received a nomination and was notified that I am academically and physically qualified. My RC told me if I do not receive the waiver by April 15th I will be considered disqualified. As disheartening as this is for me I just have to accept it and move on. I would start preparing for Plan B ASAP.

    Our DS is in the same exact situation as you are.
    Did your RC give you any indication of when the waiver or non waiver notifications will come out today or tomorrow?
    Wishing you the best of luck...prepare for the worst news and PRAY for the best news!

    Not a word, how about you? Ive been on the portals and forum since 7am and checking hourly.
    There was a post that said someone in ADMIN advised a candidates on Friday that it could be as late as the 18th.
    Keeping my fingers crossed, lifting up prayers and anxiously awaiting an update.

    I can't get to the portals. My DS checked last night. I emailed the RC yesterday and never heard. I don't know how they will be notified. I had a bit of an anxiety attack yesterday, my DS had to comfort me. I has hoping that since it's a holiday weekend it would be delayed. Good luck may this be over soon. My DS went to SLE last yr and was mad when he came home because he wanted to stay. I'm hoping with 3 nominations and a strong file it will over ride the waiver. Good luck to you.

    DS was accepted, i believe we may be in your district. it pains me to see you waiting. our state coordinator excitedly told our son, when he was accepted, 'looks like we will have 2 from the district!'.....
