DS received a letter this week from Naval Acadamy Admissions stating that he had been granted a waiver (we didn't even know that a waiver was being sought - just noted that his status has changed on the DodMERB site last week - to Waiver Granted USNA). The letter was worded in a way to make me (not DS - ) very hopeful - it said "when you graduate you will be able to assigned to any non-resticted duty" or something along those lines. Is getting a waiver this soon is a good sign (he was just DQ'd medically on 10/15)? Or am I reading too much into this? Cautiously optimistic & very, very grateful for a waiver out of the blue!!! No nomination yet, DS has an interview w/Senator's committee in a few weeks.
