I applied for the point in high school, received a congressional nomination, got a letter of assurance etc. After my medical examination, I was rejected by dodmerb for eye problems (intermittent alternating esotropia). It was one of the worst days of my life, and I hadn't applied to many other schools because I had thought that I was assured a spot in West Point. I ended up going to Cuny Honors, Hunter College for a year, and I got accepted to UPenn somewhat recently. There has not been many days that go by that I do not think about reapplying to West Point. I am aware that I will have to start over, losing two years of college credit (since I won't be able to apply for 2011). I also don't know if I can get a medical waiver this time around. I am planning to visit West Point this summer to meet with an admissions officer and explain my situation, but can anyone shed any light on what my chances are of getting that waiver? I'm a pretty driven individual, but I'm also not sure if West Point is worth losing two years of college. Should I just try and go for OCS after graduating from UPenn? My medical problem is not correctable, but I did not put forth enough effort in trying to get a waiver, a mistake that I will rectify if I do apply again. Furthermore, will I even be able to get a commission, since it was dodmerb that rejected me, rather than West Point? Thank you in advance for any insight and comments.
