    I first inquired about the USCG when applying to college as a hopeful USCGA cadet - where I was denied. Fast forward 3 years, I spoke to a USCG recruiter who said I could never be an officer (my long-term goal) due to my need of a medical waiver.

    So, I went to the Navy. They submitted my docs for MEPS and ultimately I was medically DQ’d. They used this against me as I had a high ASVAB of 91, and tried to strong-arm me into going nuke - which I had no interest doing, so I decided it was meant to be for the USCG.

    Back to the medical waiver — I played 4 years of college softball, in my 2nd year - I had a torn labrum reconstructive surgery on my right hip as well as a minor bulging disc at L5 and S1. This was due to a career of catching, which I have since recovered and resumed all regular activity as well as catching again 5mos post-surgery. (It’s actually stronger than it was before)

    I have been working with my recruiter and have submitted the medical waiver a whopping 7-weeks ago. I know there is no way to gauge the timing on how much longer and my only option is to wait. But is anyone in/has been in a similar boat?



    tl;dr

    I’ve been waiting 7 weeks for a medical waiver bc of a college softball injury. Anyone face something similar to this?

    Understand that there is but one Medical Officer at CG Recruiting HQ that reviews all medical waiver requests, so these things can take awhile. You may try gently reminding your recruiter of the waiver and see if they'll follow up with CGRC.

    It takes a while. Average timeframe I saw while recruiting was 3-6 months. It’s a waiting game.

    Oh wow.. I wasn’t aware that was the average. My recruiter suggested 3-4 weeks.. more waiting and preparing physically I guess.

    Just wanted to see if anyone had a similar medical DQ and what their process was like.. my fear is waiting all this time to be turned away from the USCG.

    My son tore his ACL as a freshman in college. Had ligament replacement. Went on to run track (and get nationally ranked D3 - brag). Enlisted after graduation. It took almost 6 months to get a waiver. That was 4 years ago.
