    Eagle Phase Change - Expectations

    I totally agree although it does go against the information coming out about Flag. Oh well, I guess we will find out in real time! Thanks for the reply.

    Eagle Phase Change - Expectations

    I'm wondering if the companies headed up to Eagle will have a truncated amount of liberty after the Flag Ceremony. We are having a difficult time deciding if we should head down to the flag ceremony. It is only a 3 hour drive for us to campus so even if we miss our Swab we would still get to...

    Eagle Phase Change - Expectations

    Thanks, we are very close and will definitely flex our Semper Gumby muscles. We have an annual family party on Saturday but that is only 1 hour away. Still easy to do both. Did your DS have his cell phone so you could communicate or did you have to see him to find out his schedule?

    Eagle Phase Change - Expectations

    Hi all, the Eagle is visiting a port near our home and luckily our Swab will be phasing in for his one week short. The schedule is posted below with public tours listed from 10-5 on Saturday and Sunday. Does anyone have advice on when would be the best time to pop in over the weekend?

    What are my chances?

    I would highly recommend filling out the Recruit Me form on the USCGA Athletics website and let Coach Parsons know you are interested. Being a recruited athlete is very helpful to the admissions process at CGA if you tick off all the other boxes.

    Appointment Package?

    I had the same questions. The packet is an official appointment that comes in a nice binder. There are a few to-dos included around proving US Citizenship/Eligibility. The bulk of the paperwork will be associated with the forms on-line at the Class of 2028 page (which is still being updated)...

    NBIS (National Background Investigation Services) process for USCGA

    I asked my DS. He did his fingerprinting at the local base and it sounds like they did the whole process all at once. He is going to follow up with his AO to be certain. Thanks!

    NBIS (National Background Investigation Services) process for USCGA

    MY Ds did his fingerprinting a while back. To my knowledge there has been no additional communication regarding additional information for NBIS. Out of curiosity....how was that request for info communicated?

    What happens next?

    We have been working on just that...trying to find ways to spend time together. It is hard as we are all so busy (DS's schedule is tough) but we are also counting down the days. There aren't that many days left before R-day. We have tickets to see his favorite NBA team and are planning a trip...

    What happens next?

    Great advice. We had picked up on that earlier and his "minor" passport was expiring this month. His renewed passport arrived in the mail this week so we can check that off the list.

    Thank you! That makes perfect sense.

    What happens next?

    Hi all, just curious what happens after a full appointment is accepted? For clarity, my DS received his full appointment and formally replied that he would be accepting. Along with his response he submitted the requested documentation proving he was an eligible US citizen. He received an...

    CGAS Questions

    You should be proud of your accomplishments! I would suggest researching and connecting with others who have experienced CGAS. My DS is accepted to the class of 28' and will be joined by a friend who went to CGAS. They will be classmates. Ultimately they had different paths to USCGA but will...

    Is anybody still waiting?

    Sit tight and have faith. I would continue to delay any commitment if they are second and third choice schools and the USCGA is truly your personal or DS/DD's goal. They will wait or they will lose the opportunity to coach you or your DS/DD. My nephew just walked on as a freshman to his...
