    My son received conditional acceptance to CGA, but was disqualified for ADD. We're in the waiver process. Anyone know if ADD ever gets waived, if they look at the type of ADD or severity. Is there anything we can submit that can help in the waiver review? Thanks.

    Moved for ya.

    Your best bet is to contact Mr Mullen with the required identifying information.

    In my very, very limited experience (almost so limited that I probably shouldn't comment) the CGA is the most difficult for waivers.

    Historically, from what I have seen, ADD needs to show continued superior academic performance off medications and without any accommodations (eg extra time on test, test in separate area, etc) to receive a serious look.

    As is usually the case, KP 2001 is on target. For almost ALL "labled" conditions, there is a specturm of severity and effect on functionability. The USCGA will make a risk assessment to arrive at their decision.:thumb:
