    Has anyone received a DODMERB email requesting physicals to be scheduled? My DS received a notice in mid-July stating that he would receive his notification from DODMERB within a couple of weeks. Except for nomination and physical, his application was complete on June 20th.

    Yes, we received snail mail about setting up a DODMERB account and DODMETS account. I recommend you go right to the DODMETS and DODMERB site and try registering. If he is in there, it will allow you to register and get the process going. We received fully qualified status seven days after appointments.

    Dodmets: https://www.dodmets.com/

    DODMERB: https://dodmerb.tricare.osd.mil/UserLogin.aspx

    So you know, DODMETS is the contractor that gets the assignment from DODMERB to process the appointments, etc. You need to register on both sites.

    Strange, I was finally able to create an application on DoDMERB today but could not do the same in the DoDMETS system. Guess I'll have to wait for the snail mail to see what's going on.

    My advice is to contact the DoDMERB help desk to ask these types of questions. That is what they are specifically set up for. Best of luck to you all.:thumb:

    He received his LOA today. He still hasn't received snail mail with registration information. We will call DODMERB directly tomorrow to see if we missed it somehow. Thanks to all for the feedback.

    LOA for class of 2018? Congratulations. Do you mind sharing stats and what state?

    Congratulations on the LOA!

    When I saw grevar's post that he received DoDMERB letter, out of curiosity, I had DS log on and create an account because I figured his DS and mine were at the same phase (complete applications), there was nothing there though; the next day we received the snail mail letter and were able to proceed.

    Yes, 2018....Oklahoma.

    In reference to sharing stats of new candidates....... I am not sure that anything is gained by sharing. What we have learned is there is no magic formula to grades, standardized testing, leadership, etc. We have had friends who have had phenomenal grades and still haven't gotten appointments. DS has pursued the USNA since he was a freshman. He is a highly recruited varsity baseball player. He has been to the Academy five times for different events. He has made it point to meet with different leaders when he has been there. (Officers, coaches, influential retirees, etc.) They know is desire and have followed him for a couple of years. He attends a very difficult prep school that has a 100% college matriculation rate. He has four years of Mandarin Chinese (We were told he was the first varsity baseball player to ever come to the Academy with this level of knowledge of the Chinese language).

    All of the above said, his GPA is very high and his standardized test scores are fine (not off the chart). He has performed several hundred hours of volunteer work. He has worked in leadership positions. He was the captain of the varsity baseball team as a junior.

    I wish I could nail down 'the perfect scenario". It has been a lot of work on his part that has gotten him this far as outlined above.

    I am not sure this helps answer any questions. It may only add to the frustration of trying to help guide our DS/DD to the exact path to an appointment.

    One final comment, this forum has been fantastic in educating us on the level of candidates that are trying to get an appointment. The USNA is truly a remarkable place.

    GO NAVY BEAT ARMY!
