    Ok now that I have all my application requirements in (and hopefully acknowledged by now) when should I expect information about the medical exam? Since I read that it can take over a month to get an appointment, and I can't pursue it until they contact me, I would like to get this over with before the deadline. Anybody know how I can proceed to speed up the process?

    If your application is considered "competitive" for an appointment, your name will be forwarded to DODMERB (via the contractor Concorde, I believe).

    If not, it won't.

    The deadline to complete your medical exams is April 15.

    I DON'T KNOW IF IT WORKS DIFFERENTLY FOR USCGA, BUT you might want to contact DoDMERB (through their helpline) and ask if they have your information already. If they do NOT, I suggest you contact whoever handles your application and inquire if your name was sent (if you were considered competitive) to DoDMERB. Something went wrong with my application, I believe, and I was only able to schedule the DoDMERB exam this month (I'm a USMA candidate. Note that I was considered competitive several months ago).

    What I'm trying to say is... be proactive about this, because errors DO happen, and it might not be your fault (such as you are indeed competitive but your info never reached them) that your information wasn't forwarded to the DoDMERB. So get that phone and start calling some numbers :D

    ^^^
    What Luigi stated is the case. If your package looks to be competitive then your name will be forwarded to DoDMERB. This is different than the other SA's. If you have already had an exam because you've applied to other SA's then that information will be available to USCGA.
