1. Is the condition progressive?
2. Is the condition subject to aggravation by military service?
3. Will the condition preclude satisfactory completion of prescribed training and subsequent military duty?
4. Will the condition constitute an undue hazard to the examine or to others, particularly under combat conditions?
5. Is the recruit *EXCEPTIONALLY* qualified, otherwise? (ASVAB scores, etc.)
6. How are current recruiting goals? How bad does that particular branch of the service need this particular applicant at this particular point-in-time?
There have been several cases of waivers approved for a specific condition, only to see a waiver disapproved for the same condition just a few weeks later.
Remember, if you require a waiver, that means that you are disqualifiedfor military service. The waiver procedure is the process of you "begging" the military to make an exception in your particular case. There is no "right" to have a waiver approved.
