  • Positive Outcome for BUMED Waiver

    Can PST scores and statements of activity in our file support a positive outcome on a BUMED waiver?

    - I have two surgeries that occurred 6 & 8 yrs ago. I put statements of activity about my training regiment and also listed out my PST scores and how after the following workouts and physical performances that I have no discomfort, pain ect. I also have an outside letter from a former diving medical officer of the Navy who supports the decision to approve me.

    I know I have read in some places that some of this will matter, sometimes I have read it will not. I believe I have competitive scores and don't want to miss out on a SEAL contract due to a process which is out of my control. Thank you for any support, advice or feedback.

    The doc at BUMED will examine any written material that accompanies the waiver and consider it before he makes a decision. Primarily, he is interested in medical stuff like physician's statements and actual test results and diagnoses, not your PST scores.
