I don't know if this is the right place for this question, but people on this forum seem to know alot about everything Coast Guard so I thought I'd try. My daughter received a conditional appointment due to a disqualifying medical condition and was notified that a waiver request was made. She has no disqualifying medical problems except a thick record pertaining to a congenital lung condition that she outgrew by the time she was about 3 years old. Granted it is a very rare condition and the medical literature on it is not well developed, but she has been competitively athletic her whole life (ice hockey, soccer, softball, running) and I would say has more stamina than 95% of the kids she plays with. She provided a pulmonologists report of a recent full pulmonology work-up showing she has normal lung function and capacity. At this point I have a few questions. First, who exactly makes the decision about whether to grant a waiver to CGA? Second, is there anything else she can do to improve the chance of receiving a waiver? Third, any idea when they might let her know? And finally, if she did not get a waiver now, would that pretty much guarantee that she would not get a waiver if she applied to OCS after graduating a regular university? Or are the standards for those waivers different? Thank you to whoever might have some insight on this.
