    So I didn't get my medical waiver approved for a shoulder surgery I had done in March of this year (2017). I'm pretty devastated because I scored a 78 on my ASVAB and am perfectly healthy. It did not state that it was a permanent disqualification and my recruiter said we may be able to try again this June, "I'm not sure why we wouldn't try again in March at the 1 year point." I really had my heart set on the Air Force and I'm willing to wait until June to try again. What are the chances I will get the waiver approved after more time has passed? Good? Bad? Somewhere in between? Why would there be a process at all if it wasn't likely?

    Thanks for reading.

    Hey there bud. You just need to be patient and train hard. As you get stronger you will also confirm your self that you shoulder is 100% Just make sure you train proper while your shoulder get stressed. Beside that i dont have knowledge why they did not give you green light. But it look like they was concerned about ur injury. But i am only guessing. It also say to get in to Air Force accepted for enlistment score need to be 50 or higher.

    But good luck there Casey
