    Hello Internet,

    I submitted my USCGA application for early action, and I received a request to complete the DODMETS exam. However, I was not able to get an appointment for this examination until this week. As I read on the website, it takes 10ish days for the company to receive results and then a further 2 weeks before these results are submitted to the DOD. Can my application be reviewed for appointment without the results of my medical exam?

    Also, do all responses from the academy with regards to admission come out on January 15th or are they staggered in waves?

    And also, through what means are you contacted to conduct an interview/ is this required to receive an appointment and can you still get in if you have not had one yet?

    Applications are reviewed separately from medical.
    All responses this year come out 15 Jan.
    Who is interviewed is determined by Admissions. We originally understood that all qualified applicants would be interviewed. However, it seems that Admissions determines who they want interviewed on a case by case basis internally, then requests one. If that is incorrect, please let me know as well.

    To my understanding, if the email you received post-finishing the application reads "scheduled for review" under "Early Action," then you're set in Early Action, just complete the other stuff as quickly as you can. I was notified of the interview request via email, so unless they decide to do it by phone for you I'd check the email. This is just my experience though, hope it helps!

    Does the CGA request a DODMERB exam from all EA applicants? Is there any weeding out of applicants prior to requesting the DODMERB exam?

    Only those applicants deemed competitive are referred for a medical exam. I'm not aware of any statistics on percentage of applicants who are referred for a medical exam.
