Can anybody supply more information about a rebuttal? Are they for the service academies only, or also available for enlisted and/or direct commissions? If so, who do I contact about one? I am attempting to direct commission or enlist and I know this message board is for the service academies, but it is the only place I have heard anything about a rebuttal. Those who I have been dealing with and have asked either don't know anything about them or won't answer any question I ask about them. I was disqualified at MEPS for something a nurse practitioner had diagnosed years ago. Her specialty is something totally unrelated and she diagnosed what I had as two different things - only one of which is disqualifying - so I think that would support the fact that her diagnosis was questionable. I requested the medical records from the specialist doctor that she referred me to at the same time for the same issue, which I did not have when I filled out my medical history, and realized at that time he had diagnosed it as something which is not an automatic disqualification. I would think they would take the specialist doctor's diagnosis over one of the two from the nurse practitioner, but they have not. They asked me to see a current doctor and get a letter saying I never had the issue, don't have it currently, and there's no reason to believe I should get it in the future, and the doctor did just that, but they did not acknowledge it. It sounds like that's what a rebuttal is, but all my paperwork has been submitted to my recruiter, and I usually get a quick phone call from him that just says the DQ stands. It took over two months to get a copy of the original waiver denial letter so I could see what it actually said, and they still based the DQ on one of the nurse practitioner's diagnoses and didn't acknowledge the new health records or the doctor's letter I had sent in at all. I have read on this board that a waiver acknowledges the condition but allows entry anyway, and that a rebuttal disputes the fact that the condition exists or ever existed in the first place, which is my scenario exactly. I have no idea of the actual process that has been going on and have only been told that my waiver has been denied, so I am trying to find out if I can file a rebuttal or something similar. Please help - any info is appreciated!
