    Depends on the issue. In the past, some issues (colorblindness) have all been waived but the number of folks who can be (and are) appointed is strictly limited.

    For most conditions, USNA waits until they have decided to make an offer of appointment and then evaluate the waiver. It's a manpower issue -- no need to evaluate waivers for people who aren't sufficiently competitive for an appointment. So timing could be any time between now and April 15.

    Thanks. We are in a similar situation would an LOA and MOC nom mean the waiver decision might move a little quicker?

    Possibly, the LOA means that USNA wants your candidate and presumably considers them competititve, but no promises. Again, it depends upon the condition and numbers , ie.. if USNA can only grant a fixed number of waivers for a condition, then they might wait to see all the candidates up for the waiver before picking.

    As I have repeated often here....be patient. Worry about those things you can control. If USNA or DODMERB asks for additional information, provide it in a timely manner. Beyond that, trying to figure out how and when Admissions works just creates unnecessary angst , for you and the others that read thse Boards.
