Waivers are approved by the line, not medical. The odds of getting a waiver primarily depend on the downstream demand.

I had heard that as well, years ago when I happened to speak to Capt Carusso he made the comment that there isn't any designator in such a need that requires them to waiver items that they wouldn't normally waiver so they just go by the medical manual, I had called about a hard to fill designator about the possibility of a waiver, he said that he is sure there is another person out there to fill the spot, you just need to go find them.

Its actually just a sensinueral dip at 500hz, audiologist call it a cookie bite loss. I have full hearing at 125hz, 250hz and 750hz -8000hz. I got two full audiological workups with ENTS, Drs think I was born with it and just went unnoticed, or sudden hearing loss but not likely as it is only one single frequency. MRI normal, no menieres or autoimmune disease.

Audiogram looks like this, +/- 5db (except 500hz which is for sure 35db)
Right EAR
250hz 0db
500hz 35db
1000hz 20db
2000hz 10db
30000hz 10db
4000hz 15db
5000hz 10db
6000hz 10db

Left EAR
250hz 0db
500hz 0db
1000hz 10db
2000hz 10db
30000hz 10db
4000hz 15db
5000hz 10db
6000hz 10db
Almost the same here but more fucked probably. I'm going crazy cause chances for a waiver are slim to none for this.

Right ear
250hz 20db
500hz 10db
1000hz 10db
2000hz 10db
3000hz 50db
4000hz 50db
5000hz 30db
6000hz 15db
7000hz 10db
8000hz 10db

Left Ear
250hz 15db
500hz 5db
1000hz.5db
2000hz 5db
3000hz 55db
4000hz 55db
5000hz 50db

CAPT Caruso is awesome. He's the lead coroner for the city I live in and still does interviews for HPSP applicants.
