    How many applicants to USMA for the c/o 2021 have had their DoDMERB exam open for them? If so, what did you complete on the portal for it to open?

    DS's opened for him several weeks ago but he did most of the application pretty quickly so I'm not sure how much needed to be done first.

    I read your post about your DS who received a LOA, congratulations! That's huge and you should be very proud. If I remember correctly, he was a recruited athlete? Do you think that opened his DoDMERB up much quicker than non recruits applications? I only say this because I have not heard of a DoDMERB being opened for many non recruits.

    Actually he's not a recruited athlete. I think he just got it done quickly so that helped but he had been waiting all summer and had USNA complete and USAFA well on its way so it wasn't too hard. Also his medical was already completed and qualified so nothing additional needed to be done on that.

    And thanks :)

    DD's opened several weeks ago also but she had most of her items completed very quickly as well. She was already q'd for USNA & USAFA.

    DS completed his application approximately 2 weeks ago but his portal shows no action on DODMERB. He already completed that as part of his USNA application. How long after completion of the application will USMA open up the DODMERB request?

    DD has her DodMERB exam this week. Very healthy, but wondering if I need to bring info from previous fractures of wrist (3rd grade) and finger (7th grade)? Are these far enough in the past to not worry about?

    These will be reported on the medical forms that your daughter had to fill out. Our experience was that the Dr. at the exam didn't look over any additional paperwork that we had, but simply did the exam as required. After the exam DoDMERB contacted us to provide supplemental information via a Remedial requirement. After looking at copies of the paperwork re: past fracture, then our DS was cleared.
