Any chance at a waiver?

Person19Person19 1 replies1 threads New Member
I’m applying to West Point, USNA, and USAFA next year. I recently discovered an allergy I have to red ants (stinging insect) which is a DQ. I’ve recently started allergy immunotherapy, and will be able to take multiple red ant stings without a reaction in a few months. However, even after I reach this level, I will need to stay on the immunotherapy for another 3 years or so. Immunotherapy within the past year is also a DQ. I’m wondering, since if I get into either SA I’ll still have to be on the immunotherapy while I’m there up until my sophomore year, is it going to be hard to get a waiver? Or do you think I have a chance since by the time I would graduate and commission I will be completely done and won’t have the allergy? Anyone have a similar situation to this?
