    My DD (and all her recommenders) completed her application by the deadline, and the CGA has been updating their site as they processed her documents. This morning the last document was processed (PFE), and it finally showed "Application Complete."

    Within an hour, my DD received an email requesting that she complete an additional form to verify her height and weight. Around the same time, we found we are no longer able to log in, but rather are funneled to a page that says, "We noticed that this is the first time you have logged in."...

    We are baffled by the whole thing, as she was several pounds under the maximum weight for her height - we wondered if perhaps her height or weight got recorded incorrectly? And we wonder if not being able to log in is related to the email they generated, or if others are experiencing this problem, too?

    My DS also went in to check out the status of his application and right after it said "Application Complete" he was hit with the same greeting..."We noticed that this is your first time..."

    Thank you. Was this yesterday or some time ago? Did it ever change to something else? We are still getting the same message.

    I recommend the applicant contact her/his admissions officer.

    I think I'm putting something together about the "first time you have logged in..." It is showing her USCGA Application as "Submitted," but the AIM Program Application as "Not Started." Still not sure why the checklist page disappeared...

    Further, DoDMerb is now showing "Under DoDMERB Review" for the US Coast Guard Academy, so obviously things are being processed. I wish they'd just waited for her to show "Qualified" under DoDMerb rather than make us go to the pediatrician on Tuesday...

    I will have her email the admissions counselor this afternoon...

    Same here.
    Reckon admissions staff is swamped with last minute apps.
    No worries.
