  • Various Waivers

    I have looked through the MANMED guidelines and have noticed some things. Between the forum and the guidelines it seems that if something is asymptomatic then you're all good. Is this right?
    I used to have sleep apnea (disqualifying) but got a tonsillectomy (also disqualifying) and now I'm good, asymptomatic for both cases. It also said that stuttering/stammering is disqualifying, and I happen to have a slight stutter occasionally. If I work on the stutter and am asymptomatic for the apnea and tonsillectomy do I need to worry about a waiver/will getting one be no problem? The tonsillectomy was 1.5 years ago and I don't plan on enlisting until I finish college in another couple years if that helps
