Red Tape

I've talked about sleep apnea a couple of times, and specifically about how the military is not a fan. Well, despite having known that this diagnosis no longer applies for a while now, the military finally had acknowledged that fact. The trouble is that they are currently out of scholarships for this year, so I'm left out on the alternate list. Fortunately, this list is based on merit, and now that I don't have sleep apnea, I'm now a top category applicant. The thing that is most irritating is that when I originally approached the Army, already having lost the weight, they told me that sleep apnea would easily qualify for a waiver. If they had just said, "we don't know, you might need another sleep study" this whole thing might have been resolved months ago and I might be reporting that I am on Army scholarship... guess I should just get used to this sort of efficiency.
