    So I just took the eye exam for my DoDMERB test required for entrance into West Point. One of the test was for color-blindness, and I couldn't read some of the numbers. So obviously, the eye doctor will indicate that I am partially color-blind. I asked him if this would get me medically qualified from a US service academy, and he said if I applied to the Naval Academy or Air Force Academy, I would be disqualified, but he said West Point's a little bit more lenient.

    So, what do you guys think? Will I be disqualified? And if I will, could I get a waiver for this?
