My high school freshman daughter has her sights set on a military academy. We are aware that the fact that she is currently taking ADD medication would make that impossible. Her plan is to stop the meds before the application process.

We understand that she must be off of her medication for at least one year in order to obtain a medical waiver. My question is -- one year before what date? Before her original application date, or some other date?

Thank you for your help.
1 year before the date of the medical exam. The medical exam may be taken once the Academy has notified us that she is an earlier than 15 Jun one year before she would enter an Academy:thumb:
