    My son has completed his physicals for AROTC. Can anyone inform me as to how long DODMERB takes to qualify or disqualify, and how will they inform us?

    Don't know how long it takes. I just finished mine today too. You will be informed when your status changes to Qualified (hopefully) or disqualified on the DoDMERB website. I'm guessing a few weeks for the update?

    Don't be surprised if you are required to take some sort of remedial action before getting a final decision. My son was remedial for orthodontia. He had to get the orthodontist to fill out a form then send it in before a final decision would be reached. Once he sent in the form he was informed of "qualified" within 7 days online and 3 days after that in the mail.

    Good luck!

    bkelly -
    post this on the dodmerb forum or ask Mr Mullen over there.
    I forget the timeline but your physical goes to Concorde who has something like 30 days to send it to DoDMERB. They process it - the speed depends on the backup and post the notification on the website. You will also get a letter.
    I would say - give it a few weeks.

    In my daughter's case it took about 4-days from the end of the physicals for the DODMERB site to show the records had been received from Concorde. About 3 days later the site showed some remedial requests. The details arrived by mail about 3 days after that. We are now in the process of gathering medical records for the remedial requests.

    Same with us...I printed the remedial list and it is TWENTY NINE pages long, all very small print.

    UGH! Yes! The layout (dense, long paragraphs) and font size of DoDMERB correspondence is hard on these old eyes! :thumbdown:

    We just looked on the dodmets.com site and my son's admission status is "pending" and his current medical status is "qualified". A DD 2368 (status letter) form was mailed on the 8th of March. He did all of his exams back in February. Does this mean my son has passed his exams and is qualified to get his scholarship?
