Waivers

Nope, it has to be signed by a General, usually in Washington DC.

I let slip at MEPS that I had asthma when I was 2yrs old. Doesn't matter that it was because I was allergic to mold (old basement apt.) or that I had run track in Highschool and never ever had any problems or wheezing again. Asthma requires a waiver.

So my recruiter dropped me for a couple weeks but must have been desperate to get someone to join, we went to the MEPS again and waited all day long, by the end of the day he got a fax back that the waiver was approved.

There are some things that can NOT be waived though...
It doesn't need to be a Gen. I don't know where that came from. Generals have more important things to worry about than if johnny or susie gets a waiver to get into the army. Depending on the seriousness, the final decision can be made by senior recruiting officers. Every MEPS is different but the docs there should take care of it with the help of your recruiter. If anything, you'll have to do like I did after I destroyed my knee, and go see a military doc and tell them it doesn't bother you. They should sign a waiver or memorandum or whatever and you can take that with you to MEPs. I'm pretty messed up and I've seen worse get waived. I was an Air Force SF TAC-P with airborne knees and I got in the army just fine.
