My DS accepted his appointment to USMA on December 6, dislocated his shoulder on December 17 (in a wrestling tournament), had arthroscopic surgery to repair shoulder on January 9, was DQ'd by DoDMERB on January 25. We've been told by USMA that a waiver will have to be approved by April 15 or DS won't be able to report for R-Day on July 2. In order for waiver to be granted, USMA wants a release to full, unrestricted activities from doctor. Here's the issue: DS's doctor says DS won't be ready for full release by April 15 but WILL be ready for full release by the end of June (before R-Day). Does anyone know if that April 15 date is flexible at all? How about a having a "release" from doctor by April 15 that releases DS by June 30? If I had know that I should have wrapped DS in bubble wrap and put him in a corner until he reported on R-Day, I would have done it. He's a 4-year varsity wrestler and captain of the team - what else was he supposed to do but wrestle? So dissapointed. Just trying to work through the process and would like some clarification/further information about the deadline date. Any help would be appreciated!
