Congrats to you and your daughter! My son did write the letters on March 28, when he learned that USMA had denied the waiver. His psychiatrist had originally written a letter rebutting DoDMBERB and saying he didn't have a mood disorder, but basically teenage angst and adjustment issues due to family and academic issues, in mid-March, but no luck. We have had him "tested" by a psychologist, based upon advice of several other medical professionals, and the results will be in the next couple of weeks. We have sent a letter to DoDMERB telling them that as well. We are trying to remian postiive, but based upon other posts I have been both in this forum as well as college confidential and other sources, it doesn't look too promising. But we are doing all we can and he has sent his acceptance to another college. Of course, this medical DQ will impact his ability to get the ROTC scholarship, although we have already filed for a waiver with them as well. My biggest concern about this, and the warning I want to give to all parents who have children who MIGHT be interested in a service academy or the military, is the prejudicial attitude the military has towards seeking psychological help. In my opinion, their attitude has set the mental health profession back 100 years. Teenagers and other people do have occasional "issues" that they are able to overcome with help. That doesn't mean they have a disorder. But thanks for letting me know your good news. I will keep this forum updated. And RetNavy has been a wonderful source of advice, not only to me but to others.
