OK - After 3 phone calls in the past week from the Naval Academy Admissions Office asking about my daughter's Medical Report ( Hurrah at least they are looking closely at her application!!!) - on friday, Sept. 2nd we finally saw the online reply. Now they want remedial requests
Agency: US Naval Academy Sub Agency:
Status: Remedial Requested
R152.14 - Obtain a manifest refraction
R252.10 - DD Form 2382, Statement of History Regarding Allergies
D257.70 - Unaided distant visual acuity worse than 20/20
It was pretty scarey to try and navigate what all this means but after much web work I actually got my hands on the actual DoDMERB forms. Of course we find all this out on a friday afternoon, and we are on a 3 day weekend so we can't respond immediately!!! What we have done is get an eye exam, which they requested - the eye doctor reported that without glasses, both eyes together, my daughter sees 20/15.
The ONLY thing we reported on her med forms was an infant under one year of age, rash to penicillin, and we have the requested forms to respond to that once again.So we expect this to be no big deal
Our plan is to call Rita Wacker, who has been calling us there at USNA, the very first thing Tuesday morning and find out how... and who ... gets this information immediately....and should be overnight this stuff to her or what????
If anyone else has suggestions, we're open. It seems like our daughter is being looked at pretty closely. Her Blue and Gold, (whom she has been in contact with since Freshman year - she has been so involved in working towards an USNA Appointment) - told us he is pushing for her to get an LOA - but who knows if that will happens. We don't know anything.
Does this remedial paperwork slow this whole train down or what??????
