Thread: Waiver Denied

    Waiver Denied

    I was recently denied a waiver due to an astigmatism, however this is correctable through surgery. I wanted to know if i would be able to qualify if i got the surgery on my own, and how long i would have to wait before i could go back to meps to retest?

    Topic closed until you have more of a profile besides a first and last name.....site rules, which can be found in the poolee and Ask A Marine forums. PM any Squad Leader from the Squad Leaders sticky in the Ask A Marine forum when profile is complete and topic will be re-opened.

    The best person to ask would likely be the recruiter who sent you to MEPS. Although he or she might not know immediately, they should be able to contact the MEPS liason and get through to BUMED to find out if you can enlist after that kind of corrective surgery.

    Either way, it would seem you'll need a waiver approved. Either they waiver the astigmatism, or they waiver the surgery. You can't go back to MEPS at this point and act like it's a fresh visit and you've never been there before.

    Good luck.
