Well Asia (great name by the way), I am afraid you are going to be SOL.
The MEPS can look at your scars, decide it was 'self inflicted' and then decline to follow through on an 'evaluation' for a waiver (which is what the evaluation would have been for). An evaluation is NOT an entitlement OR a 'right'. If they say no, the answer is no.
I know you don't like that answer, but the bottom line is: Recruiting is good. All the services are downsizing. All the services have record retention. All the services are turning away applicants that won't require ANY waivers at all. So the fact of the matter is - they are going to be able to fill all their slots without having to go through the paperwork (and cost) hassle to give you an evaluation.
They also don't need 'proof' that you 'self harmed'. If it appears that way, that can be it, and they have the final say and that's it. And no, it does not matter they did not deliver what they said.
I don't know if writing your senator or congressman to look into it would help, or not. My guess is "not". Enlistment in the armed services is a privilege, and NOT a right. They don't HAVE to give you a shot.
Maybe you have turned your life around. I will take you at your word having been 3 years since you self harmed. That being said however, I think your 'options' are now 'exhausted'. The recruiter can't help you. This was a MEPS decision. I think you are done.
I think your ONLY option: go to college, get an in-demand degree (I’d suggest nursing, the service always seems to be short on nurses), then apply for a direct commission based on your occupational specialty. But I think that's your only path right now outside of 'civilianhood'
Sorry and good luck. Drop me an email if you need to pick my brain on anything else. Hope things go well for you
