    Hello, I'm on the process of completing my app for USMA 2019. My application is so far complete. I just need to get medically qualified. I received a nomination and have dodmerb exams tomorrow (09 Feb.) I'm wondering how long the dodmerb process will take, and if I still have a chance at an appointment. Thank you!

    In terms of the DoDMERB, I think most people have it finished within a month, tops. That time frame can increase dramatically if they request a remedial.

    I'd say you still have a chance. Try to maximize it by finishing up the DoDMERB as quickly as possible.

    Thank you for the response. I have read that if all goes smoothly dodmerb should approve me within a week or two. The deadline to complete applications is 28 Feb. Does that include the medical? As in, can my file be reviewed for admissions, then possibly an loa or conditional acceptance be given until I get medically qual'd?

    They reviewed my file within ten days, so a week or two is definitely a possibility.

    I believe that does include medical qualification, yes. I'd check with your FFR to make sure though. Talk the situation over with them. They may be able to give you some more concrete information on deadlines and such.

    Receiving an LOA at this point in the game is possible, but exceedingly unlikely. LOAs are usually for minorities, athletes and high achieving candidates that are applying early in the game.

    Best of luck to you!

    They will not review your file until it's complete. Hopefully all goes well w/ DoDMeRB and you are qualified soon.
