    I have read in the applicant handbook that a prospective can influence admissions by completing the DoDMERB process quickly (and I would assume medically qualified as well)
    I was wondering if a medically qualified applicant has a better shot than if they were to be disqualified or not done with the exam by the time admissions reviewed their file?
    Thanks for any imput.

    A candidate who meets the DODMERB standard (medically qualified) can be offered a full appointment.

    A candidate who does not meet the DODMERB standard (medically disqualified) cannot be offered a full appointment.

    A candidate who has not completed their medical exam (or is waiting on a medical waiver from USCGA) can be offered a conditional appointment, contingent on meeting the DODMERB standard (or a successful waiver outcome).

    Completing your medical exam and obtaining a "qualified" status means Admissions can offer you a full appointment sooner than they could if they had to wait around until May to see if you will meet the standard.

    The longer you wait, the fewer appointments are left.
