There are waivers for everything in life, of course, but the current pre-reqs:

Minimum prerequisites:

Must hold a CMF 18 MOS.
Must be a SSG (E-6) or above.
Must have a minimum of 3 years documented (NCOER) experience assigned to a Special Forces Operational Detachment-Alpha (SFOD-A).
Must have a current DA Form 330 (within 1 year) with at least a 1/1 language proficiency.
Must meet the medical fitness standards for SF duty and commissioning within 24 months of application submission. A completed USAREC Form 1932 (Physical Cover) must be included.
Must be Achilles Dagger (AD) qualified or Level III qualified. If AD qualification is older than 2 years, the SM must have employed Level II tasks or received refresher training in the last 2 years and be verified by the Group Commander in his LOR.
Must have at least the minimum Letters of Recommendation (LORs) from the following:
SF Group Commander
SF CCWO
SF Battalion Commander
SF Company Commander


That is from the US Army Warrant Officer Recruiting Website.

For all readers other than BTDTs: DO NOT POST ASKING FOR CLARIFICATION ON ANY OF THOSE PREREQS.
