Depth Perception Denied at MEPS

Just got the letter saying that I am not qualified for SNA.

I know the civilian waiver is no longer an option. I got 20/17 vision for both eyes distant and near. I took the depth perception test at MEPS where I had to look at circles to see which stood out. To be honest, that MEPS test was compete BS. I expected to get my eyes dilated but they didn't give me one. What are my options besides giving up my dream to be a NA?

It's normal that they don't dilate your eyes at MEPS. They usually just do that at OCS. If the civilian doc is no longer an option, which seems to be the consensus around here, then you still have a shot at becoming an NFO.

Just called my recruiter, I'm going to try and retake the depth perception test like my life depended on it.

Good on your recruiter for getting you a retest. If he has that kind of pull, ask if he can get you tested with any of the other approved methods as well. Finally, get back on here (or get your recruiter) to explain how he was able to get you a retest. Plenty of folks getting the 'Welp, that's too bad' answer around here. Your information will be very valuable for another applicant! BTW, I have one of those 'thanks, but no thanks' letters in a box around here somewhere as well.
