It took about 22 calendar days (including Christmas and the the new year) for my DD's medical waiver to complete. Her ALO told her that they only made request if you're competitive. So I guess you just submit what ever documents they need and wait. Good luck to your application!How long does it take USAFA to make a decision on a waiver request? The last of the information that they requested was received by dodmerb on February 5th. Also is there anything I can do if they don’t grant me a waiver? Thanks
Congratulations to you...guess he has a little more waiting at this point, thanks and again, congratulations!
Nope, She was granted a waiver in early January but did not receive an appointment that year. She had to re-apply and the waiver was still good the next year.USMA 1994... do you mean that the waiver came in too late (April or May) so they offered her an appointment for the following year without reapplying?
Just a technically, it isn't DoDMERB that waits to review the waiver requests ... It is the SA medical waiver authority, in this case the USAFA Surgeon General ...I've heard DODMERB often waits to review waiver requests to save resources (no need to process waivers for students that aren't admitted). So, I'd guess it's a good sign when a waiver request is granted--but don't worry too much if the waiver isn't granted by mid-March. I'm a newbie, so please correct me if I'm off. I hope this helps others!
