    Default concerned about getting a DQ

    So I'm really concerned because back in January I had a abnormal pap that was due to HPV. It wasn't the one with warts though it was a low risk one that caused dysplasia. In March I had a procedure for the dysplasia and have had normal paps since even though its only been about 5 months I was there every couple weeks. I don't want this to DQ me and I don't want to have to wait to swear in. Will this be a problem at MEPs? Can I get a waiver?

    The Army might make you wait at least 6 months since your procedure to let you enlist. That's to make sure that you're completely clear. I suggest running that past a Recruiter. He'll probably tell you what documentation you'll need from your doctor that completely clears you & let you know what your chances are. I think the more time you put between your procedure & your actual enlistment the better chance you'll have of getting in the Army.

    Have you started the enlistment procedure yet?

    I have started the process my recruiter went on leave though and I ws scared that telling him he would automatically say its a DQ. August would be my 6 month clear, but I dont want to risk them saying it has to be longer.

    It would be better if your wait to ship was longer than not at all as a result of a permanent DQ.

    I think your questions are best left to a Recruiter to answer. He might tell you to get documentation from your doctor clearing you that you can present at MEPS for your final physical. He might just say to keep quiet about it after HE sees your documentation.

    What is your ship date?
