    In an earlier post, RetNavy said: ADD/ADHD with current medication use is a disqualification. Waivers can, and have been granted for it in the past (not very many, only 3 that I can remember), so to say a waiver will never be granted is incorrect.

    Can you share your thoughts on why those waivers were granted, or what might have made those cases unique?

    DoDMERB does not have access to the applicants admissions package, and DoDMERB is normally not a part of the waiver process except for forwarding information. So as for why those applicants received waivers for ADD/ADHD while on medications I don't know that answer.
