    Hi y'all!

    So I was borderline overweight when I took my physical exam for the DoDMERB. USAFA requested that I have my body fat percentage determined by a tape test. I got that done and a few days later, I got a letter from USAFA that my body fat "exceeds the Air Force Academy entrance standard" and that "the Admissions Office will consider you for a waiver and/or ask that you be re-measured." However, I just got the results from DoDMERB, and it says that I am "Qualified" on both the DoDMERB portal and my USAFA application. There was nothing about a waiver or anything. Am I still not qualified according to USAFA?

    Dodmerb qualifies you medically. Height/weight is separate from that.
