    I just recieved a letter in the mail saying "Congradulations! On behalf of the Superintendent, I am pleased to offer you a conditional appointment to the United States Coast Guard Academy Class of 2013!" That is the best sentence I have ever read so far.

    I do have one question. I also recieved a letter from DoDMERB. They found me disqualified for Distant visual acuity not correctable to 20/20 in each eye. I was wondering if this is a disq. that the academy will send a waiver for. Thanks.

    I am very excited and good luck to everyone else.

    Congratulations to you! Check with Mr. Mullen of DodMerb (he is awesome) regarding the USCGA waiver. The waiting is almost over for you! You have an appointment, wahoo!! You and your parents should be very proud!

    His contact information is posted on the DoDMERB section. I too have nothing but praise for Mr. Mullen. Be sure to include your full name and the last 4 digits of your social security number in your email. You are automatically considered for a waiver but Mr. Mullen can give you a better answer than anyone here.

    @ USCGA Hopeful

    When your conditional appointment arrived, was it in a letter envelope or in the large, regular appointment package?
