I found out that I received a 2-year NROTC scholarship for the fall 2013 semester at the very end of June. Due to some processing/paperwork/etc. my unit wanted to handle first and some incredibly slow response times therewithin, I was not allowed to start scheduling my DODMERB exams until late last week. I finished my last appointment today. I have a pretty clean medical record and, except for poor vision/glasses, have no reason to suspect I'll be disqualified for anything. My main concern is with DODMERB's response time, as the fall semester is approaching and my pending scholarship is my means of paying tuition. I've heard of people hearing back anywhere from five days after everything is received to a month and a half, not including any remedial that may be necessary. Does anyone know how long that might take around this time of year? A second question: although my vision is not spectacular, as stated above, I have reason to fear that my optical exam might have unfair results. The doctor was in a huge hurry to get me in and out, and didn't speak much English. I didn't completely understand the instructions on several of the tests he performed and I'm afraid that, because of this, my vision might be marked as much worse than it really is for DODMERB review. If I do happen to get a vision DQ, will I be able to appeal it and get retested?
