    I am currently "conditionally accepted" into the Army's GTG ADO...pending waivers and medical. My waivers are uploaded and good to go but I'm having some push back from DODMERB. After going through the remedial phase, I am seeing a D122, for history of ear surgery. Is this a disqualification and has anyone gotten a ROTC waiver approved for it? Is there anything I need to do in order to request the waiver?

    Please advise.

    For incoming freshman ROTC scholarship awardees, a waiver request is automatic. For participants already in a ROTC program, the request for waiver comes from their chain of command. My GUESS would be that for GTC ADO the waiver request would be from your chain of command, and it would be best to work through your chain of command. You should not need to do anything, but again check with your chain of command.

    The medical standard is here http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/corres/pdf/613003p.pdf but you probably have aleady looked at it. Yes, you are disqualified and you will need a waiver. A cochlear implant is non waiverable https://www.jmu.edu/rotc/prospective-cadets/Non-waiverable medical conditions.pdf. Other ear surgeries may be waiver.

    Hi there! I've also been conditionally accepted to GTG ADO, pending two medical waivers. One is for my PRK surgery that I got through the Army, and the other is for a mild latex allergy.

    The day I got notified that I was conditionally accepted, I also got my official DQs from DoDMERB. The way that it was explained to me by previous applicants and my medical tech is that DoDMERB will request AMIs/remedials before officially DQing you, so they have the paperwork they need already to send to the waiver authorities. Then (in our case), medical waiver requests will be submitted automatically for us to the CC Surgeon. I received an email from Ms. Jones, the POC for CC and waivers, and she said my paperwork should be reviewed in the next 1-2 weeks.... I am confident I will get my waivers but MAN, it's nerve-wracking not having the guarantee! Plus, I'm psyching myself out reading all these waiver request horror stories. lol.
