    My DS completed his Part 1 application for USMMA which apparently spawned a letter from DODMERB requesting he schedule a physical.

    The process was amazingly fast.

    08-JUL-13 Date applicant entered into DoDMERB system
    08-JUL-13 Application Added
    27-JUL-13 Actual date of exam
    30-JUL-13 Date exam received at DoDMERB
    30-JUL-13 Medical data entry
    31-JUL-13 Date exam reviewed

    Agency: US Merchant Marine Academy
    Cycle Year:2013
    Current Medical Status:Qualified

    Is DS only "Qualified" for USMMA? If he wishes to attend the USCGA, what if anything would he have to do in regards to DODMERB?

    Thanks.

    USCGA will just piggy back on that exam, thus he will be qualified for every SA.

    The only time it changes is when a waiver is required. I.E. DQ'd for XYZ. In that case USMMA would do their waiver, and USCGA would do theirs.

    DoDMERB qualifies, branches waive.
