    DS had a USAFA waiver approved last fall. He is joining the AFROTC detachment at his #1 choice school. How likely is it that AFROTC will approve a waiver since USAFA already did?

    I realize they are different authorities for the waiver approval but I would guess (my mistake, I know) that the Air Force requirements don't vary much from SA to ROTC. If he were moving to another branch it would be a different question but just curious if anybody has any experience with this?

    While USAFA and AFROTC are 2 different medical waiver authorities, my experience is that the chances are good that AFROTC will also grant the medical waiver.

    Best wishes.

    That was what we hoped and thought. It seemed to be a simple waiver as they didn't even request additional information so hopefully that will be the process going forward. Thanks for your insight.
