    She's not going anywhere. It is HARDER to get a commission than to enlist. As a rule, if you need a waiver for it to enlist, a commission is out entirely. Besides that, they already have her information on file and know why she was denied enlistment. That standard hasn't changed and as I said, the standard is HIGHER for officers.

    The military is not a career option for her.

    If a person was determined to be PDQ for enlistment into two different military services, they aren't going to be eligible for a commission. The fact that they didn't even make it to the MEPS physical exam means that the problem was something very basic probably in their medical history. The services have access to all previous paperwork of attempts to join the services and multiple previous attempts would raise big red flags.

    Which part of PERMANENT disqualification do you both refuse to understand?

    No, she won't be PDQed again. She IS STILL PDQed and that isn't going to change.

    the minimum standards are the same for all branches and for officers and enlisted.  in fact, they are tougher for those seeking a commission.

    There are a few things about depression that would be a any history of self harm or being an in-patient for mental conditions.  

    Those things are part of your history and never go away.  There are no waivers.

    and tell me,  was she PDQ'ed  just for a "depressive" notation. 

    or PDQ'ed for the self harm scars while she was "depressive". 

    Because if it was for self harm scars,   she can stop trying now.  The answer will always be NO.

    It's very doubtful that she'll be accepted, but she won't know until she tries.
