Waiver Timeframe / Contact Info at USNA?

I got a letter of assurance from USNA back in early December, before DoDMERB had finished processing my forms and before I got a nomination. I got the nomination in late December, and I got a letter from DoDMERB in January, saying that I was DQ'd for color deficiency.

I've read on the forums that the time frame here is anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months. Does the fact that I got a letter of assurance help my case?
Also, who can I call at USNA? Would I just call admissions (I keep missing their closing time:frown:)? I heard talk of a waiver office there I can call to check on my status etc., but i can't find the number. Does such an office exist and if so, how can I contact it?

Thanks in advance for all your help!
Never Mind!!!

Thanks but I just called and USNA granted me a waiver!!
They said I would get an official answer by mail in the next couple of days.

That they are!
Just got my call from my Congressman yesterday!
Congratulations! Your appointment is on its way!!! :)
