Upon receipt of the 3 yr ROTC scholarship, the ROTC box on the DODMERB portal changed very quickly to show DS needed a waiver. But on the ROTC site, the "Waiver needed" box is still blank. (maybe it says "none", I don't have the page up). Does this mean the waiver process is unnecessary, or not yet initiated? We have a friend whose condition was a DQ for USNA with waiver needed but not an issue for NROTC. I thought DODMERB Q'ed or DQ'ed and each division decided whether or not to waive. Im afraid that nothing has progressed with his waiver, as in they haven't even started the ball rolling. I'd love for it to mean he doesn't need one. How can I tell?
