    I'm worried that my eyesight may not be up to par with the standards for the CGA. What would happen if i received a remedial or even a disqualified on my eye test?

    If you are Remedial, DoDMERB will request additional tests, exams or information to answer any questions they have. You should comply with any requests immediately. After receiving your additional information, DoDMERB will again review your file.

    If you are Disqualified, the Academy will automatically consider you for a waiver. Do not send waiver requests to the Academy. Waivers are granted on a limited basis and with the best interest of the Coast Guard in mind. You will notified of the waiver decision in writing as soon as the review process is complete.

    JennaG - cut and paste your posting; provide your complete name and last 4 SSN; and send to me in an email. I can assist you better from there.:thumb:

    Clarification: USCGA Admissions will automatically review your case to determine if they will process an applicant for medical waiver consideration. This is based on an applicant's competitiveness for an offer of appointment. :thumb:

    D-155.41 disqualification

    Larry, my daughter received a D-155.41 and her opthamologist doesn't agree with the test scores and they were done with her old glasses as she was in the process of getting a better prescription. how does one go about requesting a re-take if the results were already submitted with a "disqualified" results? This is a critical time for the U.S.C.G.A. as they are doing early decision currently? Thanks for any insight.

    gtmike, go ahead and follow Mr. Mullen's previous instructions and send him your question in an email, including your daughter's full name and last 4 digits of her Social Security Number, so that he can look into her particular case and advise you from there.

    We worked closely with Mr. Mullen when going through a vision DQ for my son last year (who is now a proud member of USNA Class of 2014!). He is a remarkable man who will do everything he can to guide you and help you through the hurdles you may encounter in the DoDMERB process.

    Do not give up ...!!

    Folks, this is not difficult. If you have a question I can assist you with, send me an email. I will not answer it publically on the Forums. However, if you wish to obtain opinions of what people think or what happened with them, then don't send me an email. I'm here to assist:thumb:
