    I was born with hip dysplasia and have had a couple of surgeries to correct it. I am due for another surgery, but I am currently not limited physically and feel that I will not recover in time for plebe summer. My own doctor has said it isn't needed immediately, but what is the likelihood I could get this waived with my personal doctor's approval? When do I apply for a waiver?

    You will not apply for a waiver.

    If DODMERB DQ'S you, the SA will choose to consider you for a waiver. It is then no longer in DoDMERB's hands.

    Each SA (and ROTC program) has its own waiver criteria.
