Today, my application to join the navy was rejected due to having cancer in the past. It would seem my sister applied, we see the same doctor, and the office assistant pulled the wrong chart to submit the past medical history on because she forgot her ABCs. I was rejected before I ever applied. FML

I/OP didn't submit anything! My sister did but it was rejected because my medical file was attached, and I had cancer. If I have seizures daily and get seasick in a daily basis with a permanent balance impairment issue, why would I join the Navy?

And now your doctor is facing a HIPPA violation...

hey OP I'm on the navy and if you get the hospital to fix your records then you could resubmit them and still join (I had to do something similar)

Resubmit what? OP didn't apply, the sister did.

After reading the FML, how do you think OP's sister applied? Wouldn't she have written this...🙄

The exact words "it would seem my sister applied" and the end where it says "I was rejected before I ever applied."

I think it would be the phrase, "It would seem my sister applied," that makes people think that it was his sister who applied. Call me crazy.....

OK yeah but same advice goes... Sister can still get a shot at her goals. And that is good news.

And now your doctor is facing a HIPPA violation...

That seems fixable. Good luck with your resubmitted application.

OP didn't submit an application, so they can't resubmit one.

bl3ur0z3 - OP submitted an application and was rejected because they received his sister's medical records from the family doctor instead of his.

Where's the FML for you? Your sister's life got fucked

Oh wow! I totally misunderstood... I think because you started with "my application" - my bad!

Reading comprehension

Same - it was confusingly written lol. When OP said "my application was rejected" because of a mix up in medical records with their sister, it really made it seem like it was OP who applied and the sister was the one who had cancer and messed things up for OP lol

Well now you know that the Navy rejects people when they had cancer in the past. Fortunately, most employers don't use such flimsy excuses to refuse applicants.

It's not a flimsy excuse. The Navy has risk factors to take bnb into consideration. It's not a Wal-Mart job.

It’s a sign just stay away from the navy😁

I am so confused. If OP was rejected before ever applying, does that mean it was the sister who applied and the doctor sent OPs medical history instead? Or is it the other way around?

OP has followed up and it appears your first guess was correct.

I do hope that office assistant is looking for a new job these days.

Praying for you.

If they got the wrong medical records that's fairly easy to fix. I'm wondering why you're just giving up.
