    I am hoping to be part of the USCGA class of 2015 and am in the process of completing the application.
    I had 3 seizures in the spring of 2004 at the age of 10. I immediately went on meds and then went off meds in April 2006. I have been seizure-free since on meds in April 2004, as well as since off meds in April 2006.
    It is my understanding that this can be disqualifying if, at time of DoDMERB exam, one is not seizure-free off of meds for 5 years. Does this mean I should/must wait until April 2011 to have my exam? That seems pushing the deadline a bit too close for comfort....
