    USCGA Application Question

    Yes, Thank you Objee. I saw that shortly after posting my above response. I realized I might be missing something because I was already logged in. My pattern since December has been to go straight to the Application page. This is what I did because I falsely presumed I knew what I was doing...

    USCGA Application Question

    I was wait-listed for 2025, I tried to "re-apply" today, (that is to open a new application for 2026) to get started on it early. It still has my 2025 application, showing as submitted un-editable. I suspect it said "you must be 17 on June 28, 2021" (Swearing in day) for the 2025 application...

    AIM question!

    I had to order some for the Academy prep school. Sometimes half the battle is just figuring out the right thing to search for. Try searching for "Bed top Sheets" or "Flat bed Sheets" Here is an example (no endorsement implied) - https://www.amazon.com/b?node=10749181&ref=nb_sb_noss

    Transportation to and from

    There is an Amtrak Station in Providence, 9 miles from the airport, and an Amtrak station in New London, just up the street from the main entrance. Both stations are a short Uber/Lyft ride, or in New London you could walk.

    Waitlist Class of 2025

    I am on the CGAS waitlist, but have not heard anything. I presume I am still on the waitlist until I hear otherwise. I know they have been quite busy lately. Maybe soon they will separate out a subset of the wait-list to be short listed to wait down to a few days before. It's hard waiting...

    Waitlist Class of 2025

    Sure hope so. You sir are an inspiration indeed. When you re-applied, Did you apply for EA or RA while at Marion? EA seems early because first trimester grades may not even be available yet by the EA deadline

    The Scholar Skinny - An detailed review For incoming 2021 Scholars from a 2020-2021 Observer

    I really appreciate this post; this level of interaction, especially considering Covid, sounds completely reasonable in fact even above and beyond in my humble opinion. As someone eagerly waiting and hoping to get pulled from the CGAS waitlist I understand I may not make it into CGAS and have...

    Waitlist Class of 2025

    Thank you for the clarification. I am just hoping to make it into CGAS from the CGAS Wait-list. The scholarship I do have covers full tuition only. I can currently only afford 1 semester of self-prep non-tuition expenses, eg, room, board, books uniforms etc; so I have to get an additional...

    Waitlist Class of 2025

    I may have missed something.... Are there TWO wait-lists? One for CGAS and another for CGA direct? I thought the CGAS list was essentially the over flow from direct appointments. Hierarchically 285 - Direct appointents 60 - CGAS nn - CGAS Waitlist

    Waitlist Class of 2025

    That is encouraging. Any idea how many applicants are on the wait-list? If there are 200 wait-listed applicants we have a 20% chance, but if there are only 40 applicants on the wait-list, then awesome we have a 100% chance. My highschool graduation is tonight, I sure would have loved to know...

    USCGA Class of 2025 Appointment Thread

    I hope the number is at least 70. I'm just hoping and praying to get into CGAS from the waitlist this year. (really don't want to have to go through the application process again) Once I get into CGAS, I have no worries about doing well enough to get an appointment for 2026.

    Confused

    This is the first time I have even been in situation where I am so conflicted about potentially mutually exclusive situations. On one hand, I want to be a cheer leader and encourager and express hope those with various medical issues get their waivers. If the CG got you this far in the process...

    Coast Guard Academy Scholars CGAS Prep Calendar Schedule

    Would someone post what the Coast Guard Academy Scholars "CGAS" Prep Calendar Schedule looks like? Does the school calendar year mirror the academy's? My understanding is CGAS student report to the academy for the first 3 weeks of Swab summer, but then what? Do you then travel to the prep...

    Waitlist Class of 2025

    I accepted being on the waitlist for CGAS. I asked if I changed my major to a less popular major would it improve my chances. (Becuase honestly I'll change it to whatever the CG needs). The gist of what I was told was that the major I specified on my application will not have a bearing on...

    USCGA Class of 2025 Appointment Thread

    I received a decision over night night indicating I am wait-listed for CGAS... I'll take anything I can get, and remain hopeful. I have already sent my acceptance email. In the mean time I am enrolled at one of the 6 senior military colleges for self prep. I have a full tuition scholarship...
