    Hey, I have a LOA to USMA, but I have to get a medical waiver. I know it's impossible to tell if a person is going to receive a waiver, but am I more likely to receive a waiver if I have a LOA? Or is it still possible that I'll be denied? Thanks.

    It depends what the disqualification really is and is it waiverable. Having an LOA means you are competitive and your RC will submit for a review. If your issue is a common problem like you wear glasses then you are probably in. If your condition is more related to your ability to deploy and serve, the LOA will have little impact.
