LOA Concern


Nov 22, 2016
A couple days ago I received notice that I had received an LOA. It is conditional on me passing my DoDMERB. I have had all of my medical exams. However, there was a delay, caused by reasons unknown to me, between the sending of one of my exams. It was not until two days before Christmas that I received news that it was finally under review. On my LOA is states that all required materials must be submitted before Feb. 1 in order to keep the LOA. I am not nervous about the review being completed by Feb 1. I am nervous about receiving a waiver for a shoulder surgery that took place around a year and a half ago. If I am sent to the waiver process will my chances at receiving an appointment be harmed? I emailed my regional admissions officer and informed him of this situation. I would just like to see what you all, who have been through the process, can tell me. Thank you!
You will be fine. Your DoDMERB will be processed in time. Remember if a waiver is needed, USNA will issue it, not DoDMERB.
