In my waiver request letter on my portal it says "should the surgeon indicate that your condition can be waived for admission and you are qualified for admission in all other aspects, you will be considered automatically for a waiver through an Admissions committee review of your application file." So it sounds like the waiver has to be requested like 3 times, first by my RC, then by the surgeon, and finally by the admission committee? I though the admission committee requests it first and then gets granted by surgeon? If I get a waiver does that mean I'm likely for an appointment?

The RC and admission team really act as one. If you are very competitive for an appointment your RC will start the process.
Each academy handles waivers a little different and it can be a long process. My advice is to complete whatever they ask as soon as possible.

Medical authorities assess waiverability and advise Admissions. Admissions decides whether to waive. If you get a waiver, then you are fully qualified or nearly so, depending if you have anything else pending. Qualified candidates are then considered for an appointment. No one can say how likely, as you are competing against other qualified candidates. It is a positive sign you are being considered for a waiver; Admissions believes in you enough to keep you progressing toward being fully qualified.

Waiver approved, what now?
