I believe I am having the same issue as mnolan. The only difference is that my waiver was denied before I even finished sending all of their requested information. I started by being dq'ed for the recurrent dislocation of my knee. I dislocated it twice. However, I was sent medical remedials for the waiver process. It requested that I send a letter stating my athletic/recreational activities, and also get an evaluation done through concorde, military doctor, or personal doctor. I opted to go through concorde and saw their contracted orthopedic surgeon. After my appointment, he wrote that he saw no reason why I should not attend the naval academy because of my knee. That statement was included with another stating that I had "100% function of the left knee." Unfortunately, there was a two week delay in getting the surgeon to fax his evaluation to dodmets, who then overnighted it to DoDMERB. A few days before the evaluation got to DoDMERB, my waiver was denied. All that DoDMERB had was my letter. Do you know why they would have denied my waiver without having all of the information? I have spoken to DoDMERB, and they told me that they were sending the evaluation to the waiver board for review. Is there a good chance that my case will be overturned? I play varsity soccer, ran varsity cross-country, and an orthopedic surgeon has said that I have 100% function of my knee. Thank you for your advice.
