I have read many different dates for the first board meeting... Aug 26, Sept 1??? Does anyone know for sure the correct time frame? I know, it doesn't really matter but just curious since my DS has been busting his tush to get all completed before then. Also wondering what typically happens if a candidate has all in except waiting for DodMERB results and BGO interview to be submitted. If the board meets will they look at the candidate or wait until all is complete? If they look at the candidate and 3 weeks later the file is completed does it come up at that time for a second look or put in a pile for later in the fall? All of this considering the candidate has a presidential so far but too early for any MOC noms... Wondering if anyone has inside scoops on how the board goes about looking at candidates... Guess my concern is that if a candidate doesn't receive a LOA will their application get shoved to the back of the stack...lost in the pile for the next 6 months without another look? Trying to prepare him for the next long 6-8 months of mailbox stalking... ok, preparing myself too!
