    If I was found disqualified because my vision wasn't correctable to 20/20 in both eyes, but in reality it was only one of my eyes that was slightly under, maybe around 20/30-20/40, how will this affect my admissions decision(I applied early action) and what are my chances of getting a waiver?

    EA appointment decisions are made independently of DODMERB status.


    • If you are medically qualified when EA appointments are awarded, you would receive a full appointment.

    • If you have not taken your medical exam, or you have taken it but do not meet the standard (waiting on a waiver or remedial) you would be awarded a conditional appointment.

    The Class of 2015 deadline for receiving DoDMERB medical qualification or a USCGA medical waiver is June 1, 2011.

    Luigi59, thank you for that info. My daughter was so concerned that the EA process included the DoDMERB results. She had a disqualification for 155.41 due to an exam she did with her old temp. glasses and I understand that she can take a re-test for this?

    She can request a "rebuttal" with DoDMERB if she disagrees with a disqualification based on inaccurate medical information or test results. I'm sure more information on this process is available over in the DoDMERB section.
