    ...if anyone's admission status date on DoDMERB keeps changing. My son's has changed from Dec. 16 to Dec. 28 to Jan. 4, but we don't understand why, since he was deferred from EA to RA and nothing should really be happening to his file right now.

    I know it usually means there was some type of activity on his file at USCGA, but it can't be his updates (grades have not been sent yet).

    Anyone have any ideas? There's probably no rhyme or reason to it and it probably doesn't really matter, but we were just wondering.

    Not much else to do while in "waiting" mode!

    Thanks!

    Every time any problem came up in the DODMERB process, whether raised by NROTC, CGA, USNA, or KP....the letters and status changed and I got a new stack of sad DODMERB letters. I don't know if this is what you're experiencing or not.

    Thanks, LITS, but he has been qualified for CGA, NA and KP since September.

    Only CGA date keeps changing.

    I know Luigi posted that the change comes from the Academy, but we can't figure out what's changing!

    Wish it was the line that says "Alternate" changing to "Offer Extended"!!!!!

    Same here

    My D status has also change
    Agency:US Coast Guard Academy
    Admission Status: Alternate
    Admission Status Change Date: 4-JAN-2010
    Current Medical Status: Qualified (as of 03-DEC-09 )

    Although the other agencies remained the same. I'm thinking this could be great or not good at all.

    scdad, I just had to chuckle at your posting and date changes. This is probably all so meaningless, but we can't help but check those dates, can we? It's really kinda comical, when you think about it!

    I just looked at alot of old threads, from this time last year, and some received their appointment offers and their DoDMERB dates changed afterwards!

    Guess we'll never know, but, sadly, it does help to pass the time!!

    We also noticed the change on the DoDMERB website. Update shows 5 JAN 10 and our daughter was offered a full appointment on 10 DEC 09 under EA.
    Just think this is the agency updating on a regular basis (which we consider a good sign).

    I concur, although it might be a good question for Larry Mullen -

    Larry, why does the "Admississn Status Change Date" keep changing without any input from the academy or any change in the admissions status?

    Is this just a DODMERB database update flaw?

    No, you cannot have my full name or the last 4 digits of my SS#. :wink:

    I E-mailed Mr. Mullen earlier in the day regarding status change. I'm sure he will get back to me soon. That seems to be his modus operandi. I will post his reply when received.

    My son’s only changed once under the Current Medical Status category where you see the 28DEC date. This date used to be an earlier date that I can’t remember right now. I don’t know why his DoDMERB isn’t seeing the same action as some of you have been seeing. He did pass DoDMERB the 1st time, so I wonder if this is a factor. He did get bumped to RA from EA, so I’m wondering what the “In Process” means. I know many of you already have the “alternate” posted. Good? Bad? It is a mystery. Any thoughts?

    Agency: ' US Coast Guard Academy
    Admission Status: In Process
    Admission Status Change Date: 14-SEP-2009
    Current Medical Status: Qualified (as of 28-DEC-09 )

    Hang in there. We saw some of what you are reporting during our longggg wait. Most of it meant nothing to us, but I'm sure it did mean something to someone behind the scenes.

    March is a long way off, longer if you torture yourself on the DoDMERB site. I know...from experience.

    Enjoy your kid while you can, because CGA or not, most of the folks on this board will be sending their young ones off to college away from home.

    Sending son back this time was harder than I thought. Even harder than Rday because we got used to having him home again, and all seemed just like old times. But, after he left, there was a big empty space at the table again!

    Thinking good thoughts for you all...:thumb:

    lol....true, true! :shake:

    May you get the lovely fat envelope soon. I know that waiting drove everyone crazy around here. Especially affected were my lunch buddies...every time we had a lunch date, I'd have to either cut it short to go check the mail, or schedule lunch around mail time.

    Was deferred to RA. DODMERB site has not changed at . Still shows "in process" and "qualified as of Sept". Go figure. Has never changed to "alternate" status as many are reporting.

    how about this, though.

    I've been accepted to CGA scholars program

    I received a confirmation from DoDMERB saying im cleared via a letter. CGA = Qualifed.

    On dodmets.com it says current status: and then its completely blank. no status indicated.

    Im guessing this is just a typo or something of that natural, since I received a letter saying I am medically good to go?

    Thanks!

    Objee?

    What does the Admission Status: Alternate mean exactly? Is it Placed on some list maybe not high enough to make an offer but inline waiting for a spot.
