Hi there, DS was given two nominations - one from congressman and one from senator for USNA. The week before, we was sent the DODSMER notification that he would be considered for a waiver for red-green color deficiency. Question 1: Is the fact he has two nominations (from MA and it seems pretty competitive) helpful in any way when he comes before the admissions panel? Question 2: He can tell the difference between red and green -- but not in those pictures he is shown at the eye doctor appointments. When the eye doctor held up two pens (one red and one green) DS was able to identify the colors. Will the Academy reject him outright JUST based on this? Thanks in advance for your time!
