    I am a candidate for USMA, USNA, and AROTC. I was medically disqualified in December. I am a bit hazy on the waiver process. I have my medical information and letters from coaches and a retired army/now civilian doctor at Ft. Campbell. These documents are things that I believe would be very influential in my waiver process, however I do not know where or to whom I must send them to. My DoDMERB portal currently says "Pending Waiver Submission/Review" and my BGO asked if I had already submitted the materials; however, I do not know where they are supposed to go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Send all your supporting info into your DoDMERB technician. You can find it by name under contacts on the site. The email is at bottom of page as well and make sure you enter the correct information in the subject line. Also explained on the DoDMERB site. Good luck

    I also would not use your real name/picture on any public website. Mods can help you change your user name.

    The request for a waiver is determined by how competitive you are for an offer of admission from each academy. Getting a waiver from one does not mean you will get a waiver from another.

    Send what you have to DoDMERB and just sit tight. If you are competitive, admissions will automatically start the process.

    Not sure about USNA but has USMA requested a waiver yet? If so, your portal will read Waiver requested and instruction to send supporting documentation to Dodmerb.

    Some conditions can be waived, while others cannot. None of us work for DODMERB. Lots of older posts on the waiver process. Letters from a coach expressing an 'opinion' aren't what they are looking for. I agree you should look on your portal to see exactly what they are requesting.

    Jus to be clear though, DodMERB does not issue waivers. They are the vehicle that the commissioning sources use to evaluate and communicate medical information to candidates.

    Each commissioning source may or may not request independent of the other sources. The time line for approval may also be different.

    My DD applied to ROTC, USMA, and USAFA. She was DQ for a vision issue. West Point approved the waiver in less than a week, ROTC took nine months and USAFA didn't even request one.
