    Chatter, Congrats & Questions 2026 USCGA Appointment Thread

    First I've heard of that. I would love to be interviewed. How would one request an interview? I don't believe the essays, give enough of a picture of who I am and why I want to be a career CG officer, so I'd love to elaborate.

    The other two CGAS schools are Georgia Military College in Milledgeville, GA, and Marion Military Institute in Marion, AL. NAPS is the third in Newport, RI.

    CGAS Prep School

    Congrats. If you have the Georgia HOPE you may want to try your best to get to GMC, where HOPE money can be applied. You pay for your CGAS prep year out of your E-2 USCG pay, and GA HOPE obviously lessens the amount you pay, hence more money in your pocket.

    Submitting a low SAT score vs. no SAT score

    I just re-read this year's admissions requirements and the language looks a little different than what I recall from last year. My understanding has been that submitting the test scores were optional in the event you were unable to take the test...

    Submitting a low SAT score vs. no SAT score

    I believe the "option" not to submit test scores is there to accommodate those who could not take the test. If you actually took the test, that sounds like a different scenario than what is being accommodated. (we may have read it differently, maybe they allow for other reasons) Now, could you...

    Personal statement 4

    Look at the forth personal statement as an opportunity to try to convey more about yourself. Between the other three you are limited to 1000 words (500 - Why CGA, 250 - Diversity, 250 - Covid) with which there is only so much you can write about to give a picture of who you are. The extra 250...

    I was originally going to submit for RA, but one of the admissions officers visited the school I am at for self-prep and encouraged me to apply for EA. So I got everything in 16 Oct 2021, all LORs were already in. I guess I'll know soon enough,,,EA, deferred to RA.

    They are very responsive. If you give them a call, typically you can speak to a live person. They can tell you why it is on hold. Sometimes it's something missing, sometimes it's a typo, who knows. They'll tell you. For me it was a situation where the doctor wrote something that was illegible...
