Too much conflicting information out on the Internet. My sin will be asking these questions of admissions personnel but they are all very busy and taking a while to answer questions. My son is green deficient (deuteranomalous trichromat for the initiated). He cannot do the ishihara plates to save his life. He is highly functional though, for example had no trouble flying the simulators at Laughlin AFB and distinguishing green, white and red signals. We are optimistic he can pass the Farnsworth lantern and are certain he can easily pass vivid red/vivid green. He knows regular Navy is out and would probably choose marine option even if he had normal.color vision. Color defiency is a DQ for the USNA, we understand that and waivers are rare.. can you indicate the Marine Option from the get-go and does it change anything? Same question for NROTC.
