    ...finally changed today, two weeks after son got his appointment. So, for those looking for advance notice on DoDMERB for a hint that good (or bad?) news is on the way, it didn't work that way for us. We were a little concerned when that darn status wouldn't budge, and those around us were seeing two and three changes. I honestly think it is different for every applicant. So, in short, if you are discouraged like we were, that there is no status change, don't be. You never know...good news might be in the mail. :cool: Just a little more for you all to think about while you wait. Hope it helps.

    My son is strangely silent about the DodMERB waiver application. We share your experience, although he is NROTC.
    We all await the news good or bad.

    Sorry to hear it, Averx....but try to keep a positive mindset. A year goes by very quickly, especially if you put your mind to making the best of your time. I know it is hard to get news like this, but I sincerely wish you the best in your reapplication. Good things do happen for those who persevere.

    Good luck to your boy Ginger! I know he will do well, and I am glad that you guys have such a great plan in place for him. Somehow things always end up the way they are supposed to be.

    Have a blessed Easter!
