I just have a simple, quick question that can hopefully be answered promptly. I processed and almost cleared meps two weeks ago. I passed everything except for my eyes. I have an astigmatism that is a bit too strong. I got a consult scheduled it, went to it and apparently I still need a waiver. I signed it about a week ago and my recruiter sent it in and now we are playing the waiting game. My question is, what is a typical wait time for waivers at this time? I understand every waiver is on a case by case basis but what's an average wait time? I saw a post from 3/4 years ago where it took almost a year to get approved but then I was also seeing a post from about one year ago saying waivers are turning around quickly.
Everything about me is good to go, for whoever might ask. I got an 80 on my afqt, I have no police interactions whatsoever, no drug use, one tattoo that is within standards, no dependents, and no financial issues.
