I've tried to look this up, but many people seem to be asking about specific waivers, not the overarching Waiver process. Do I have to commit to a school before I receive a medical waiver for a 4-year AFROTC scholarship? ROTC is my backup in case I do not get in to a SA, so I do not want to commit to any school until after I find out about appointments. I understand that waivers take awhile and that the process could go on for months. I have been very lucky. USAFA granted me a waiver within 9 days of first requesting it. USMA took 2 weeks at the most. AFROTC has taken over a month and counting. Long story short, my question is: Will my DoDMERB status continue to be "pending waiver submission/review" until I agree to go to a civilian school through the scholarship or will it change even without a final decision? Thank you in advance!
