    Have any of the EA1 applicants received paperwork for DODMerb ? If you have, is there a way to know which academy initiated it?

    Yes, DS has already completed DODMERB for EA1. He had originally taken it for USNA, and when he finished his USCGA application, the DODMERB status was updated to include CG "Qualified".

    It seems that when your application with CGA is 100%, DODMERB is triggered to begin the process. If you have already taken it for another SA, the status is merely updated.

    Correct...we only schedule our complete and "academically competitive" applicants for DoDMERB medical exams.

    I think you'd need to call DoDMERB, or log-in to your profile/record on their website, to learn which academies have requested the medical exam.

    Objee was on top of it this morning.


    I'm guessing it's this way at CGA, but government organizations have a fine line to walk. How do you help out an applicant at a website that is non-govt and non-sponsored, that is driving revenue for someone? I don't think people come here specifically for Objee's guidence, so he's safe. If those concerns didn't exist, I'm sure you'd see a more official presence here. This seems to be the comfortable in-between zone though.
