    When you apply, it is an official part of the process. DoDMERB will list contracted physicians that administer it when you get to that part of the application (probably opens in mid-late summer). Usually you qualify for DoDMERB once you complete a certain percentage (around 50%) of your application. Patience :)

    Nverge- The application for USMMA for the class of 2021 is not open yet. Continue to watch online at usmma.edu in the admissions section for the application to hit sometime after April 15th. If you need help with your application, you can reach out to one of the field information reps in your state near your home town. You can find those names and contact information on this link:
    https://www.usmma.edu/sites/usmma.edu/files/docs/Local Admissions Field Reps_2.pdf
    The field reps are very helpful and can answer your questions.
    If you need assistance beyond the local field rep you can contact the admissions office per the academy website.

    @Nverge As stated above, you will be notified by the Service Academy when they've requested DoDMERB to conduct the physical. This won't happen until you complete the majority of your application. If you're a junior, you're going to have to wait until the applications open. Part 1 is completed online, but last year parts 2 and 3 were downloaded and completed offline and mailed in. You should also apply to other service academies. As soon as you complete the required docs for a particular SA, then you'll be scheduled for a DoDMERB exam. So, if you complete USNA's app first, they'll schedule you. USMMA will then piggyback off that same physical (as will other service academies and ROTC). It's a long process with a lot of work required on your end. I look at it this way - if you aren't willing to do the work on the application, then you're probably not a fit for an SA. Have patience and Good luck!
