The saga continutes...
Ok here's where he is~
Derek sent in his complete history form and a letter written from his neurologist including his research and how he hasn't exhibited any symptoms in a few years, etc. etc.
As of Monday, Dodmerb listed disqualified D231.90 - Academic skills defects. Naturally, he freaked out as he is top of his class, all Honors/AP, awesome SAT scores, st. council pres, yearbook ed., boys state and boys nation, and doesn't feel he has any academic defects (I'm actually kind of amused by it - for once he gets a dose of reality. His whole life he's always been involved in everything and he's never been 'inadequate' for anything before. Well, this is a great lesson for him - his history of Tourette's is a reality and he must deal with it).
He was prepared to be disqualified, but for a neurologicial reason. He wrote a letter and attached his transcript and activity resume and respectfully asked for a waiver review. Today it's listed as pending waiver submission/review.
Can you explain what exactly 'Academic skills defects' means? Obviously it is an umbrella code that could include a plethora of things. He thinks Dodmerb classified him as having a learning disability and I'd like to clear that up with him so he can relax and let the waiver review board make thier decision.
As always, thank you!
