Do your schools do this test once you arrive and/or allow you to waive it (allowed under NCAA rules)? Our Ivy won't consider either and I it seems burdensome since it is an NCAA requirement, not a health issue (for the vast majority).
My athlete is handling his own paperwork and unfortunately ignored this early summer test request from the coaching department. Got a call this week and told existing blood panels would work so our doctor wrote a letter saying his cell count indicated he could not have this trait. Then got an urgent email from the head of athletics saying get the test or else. Since our doctor would not order it (on grounds unnecessary for health reasons) we found a for-profit clinic and hope to get results soon. Don't want to be "that family" before the season even starts.
Just seems burdensome and I wonder if other programs take care of it for you.
