    My recruiter called me today and notified me my waiver got denied. Permanent disqualification. Because my jaw popped. It is what it is I guess. I was devastated at first but felt relieved at the same time that I don't have this over my head anymore. Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond to my questions, I truly appreciate it. Fear not, I have a plan B, the United States Navy. I wish y'all a good day.

    Not to rain on your parade, but know all services use the same medical standards for enlistment

    Can't hurt to try another branch though. I've gotta try at least, or I'd regret it and live with the "What if" question. That's just how I see it.

    True, and they may be more willing to grant a waiver

    Best of luck. If you want to serve don't forget the Army. They give all kind of waivers.

    Best of luck to you but I do have a question about this...if a waiver is needed and then denied..I thought it was all done through MEPS , same doctors, same rules for all services. How would it work if someone goes to another branch? I guess I am wondering who gives the waiver? asking for a young co worker

    Waivers aren't reviewed at MEPS.  In the case of the CG, there is a Medical Officer at CG Recruiting Command who does this.  I imagine other services have a similar set up

    CPORJM- thanks, I didn't know how that worked, and should have realized it had to be something like that as it has often been mentioned that it takes time with only 1 person reviewing them. I certainly never realized that some things might be waived depending on which branch of the service it is.
