- I am really sorry to hear that. I went to MEPS November 14. It was stressful as hell. I had nightmares about it 2 nights after. My first stop was the eye tests and I passed everything, thankfully. The color blindness test was easy. The Depth Perception was super hard. The other test to see how far or how near you can see was easy, I got 20/15 or something like that in both eyes. People at MEPS in Brooklyn were super friendly. Everyone wanted me to pass. The assisstant who conducted the eye exams told me to relax, breathe and look into that device where you have the circles and figure out which one pops out. I think I missed like two and he said, “I know you’re nervous, but look again and tell me which one looks different?” I looked again and was doing everything to notice the difference and I realized that if you look above the circles or with your peripherals, that one circle pops out, and I passed A through D. However, when I did the blood pressure, my numbers were through the roof, and it was becuz I was stressed as hell from the eye tests. Then I did the blood tests and urine tests and then an EKG at the end. I had to do it twice. The first one came out all over the place. The staff sergeant who conducted the test said “this ekg makes it look like there’s something wrong witchu. Go out, rest, and don’t remove all of your clothes.” I think I was so cold and stressed out that I almost gave myself heart palpitations. The second one was better and they approved it. Guess what? I had to wait 2 months before I got the word that I was qualified. And the main reason was that during the physical, the examiner noticed that I had alot of Nevi (moles), and he saw one that I removed 3 years ago. He wanted the pathology reports. I sent them in and they took two months to review them and basically tell me that I passed. But overall, I went in there shitting my pants, but I was hopeful, and overall I had an okay experience. Btw, it took me three tries to try and pee in a cup in front of 8-10 strangers. Somebody long ago mentioned that he ate a sandwich which appeared to have an entire turkey stuffed in it, and I fully agree to that but it was delicious as hell like he claimed. If anybody has questions, please feel free to ask.Hi all, I tried looking all over but couldn't find an answer.
I was recently prorecd for the March 3rd OCS date as a NFO. No FINSEL yet because waiting on fingerprints.
Anyways, my dream was to be a SNA, and I was a Mechanical engineer and I got great scores on the ASTB, was an auto-qual. But then I failed the DP test at MEPS. I brought this up with my Recruiter at the time but he said it was not a problem. Anyways, come to find out they immediately ignored my first choice as SNA because of the DP test. What I am wondering, is can I get the test Re done at OCS or right after OCS and then get my job changed to SNA? Or is my best bet to push off going to OCS, and try to retake the test at MEPS. I am also going to a civ doctor to get DP tested next week to be sure. Or is it possible to get changed to SNA before I sign? My recruiter says I can get switched to SNA after OCS, but this is about the 4th thing he has been wrong about so I was hoping for some better information and advice. Thanks in advance.
- P.S. - I had only 2-3 hours of sleep the night before going to MEPS, and smoked a shit ton of hookah that night too, which was not very smart since eyes needs alot of oxygen to work.
