    I just learned today that my vision can only be corrected to 20/25. Will this be disqualifying for admission to the service academies? Is there a chance I can use a waiver if it is disqualifying? Thanks.

    Have you heard back regarding this issue? I have the same problem and am waiting for a remedial request code.

    I was disqualified from USMA and USNA, but was qualified for USAFA. USNA and USMA tried to get me waivers, but it didn't end up working out.

    I was notified of my disqualification today. :( How long did you have to wait for your waiver decision?

    Not positive, but even if you get into USAFA, you probably wont be able to fly if you cant get your eyes correct to 20/20
