    My DS just had his eye, med and auditory exams July 15. How long is it before a SA candidate typically hears about his results? Put another way, what is the fastest he could be deemed "qualified"? I see a lot of information here on waivers and such, which appear to be a much more unpredictable process, but we're just curious when he'll receive his first results.
    Thank you in advance,

    Once DOMETS receives all the exams the status page will show that it has been sent to DoDMERB. Once it arrives there you can track the progress on the website. My DS completed his last exam on the 11th. Concorde sent it to DoDMERB on the 14th and his status changed to Qualified today. I would guess that process slows down during the year as the number of applicants increases.

    I would reckon no more than two weeks total. I got all my exams done by June 27 I believe, was qualified by July 8. That factors in a slow reporting of my medical exam and all the hullabaloo surely caused by I-Day and July 4.

    Assuming no major problems, a few days after they've received all the exams. You would probably know if there were any major/possible problems.

    Entered into DoDMERB system 6/16
    Called for Appointments 6/20 when letter arrived.
    Eye appointment 6/24; medical 6/27
    Exam received by DoDMERB 7/5
    Exam reviewed and status letter sent 7/7

    DS followed the progress online. There are numbers to call if it stalls. There is a great workflow diagram of the process at https://dodmerb.tricare.osd.mil/Cont...edEvalProc.pdf. Review it to understand the lingo.
