    Bullet and I were talking and we wondered if anyone knows the % of candidates that have completed their files by now, including nom. Anyone have an idea? He thinks it is a low %, I disagree, what is everyone elses opinion?

    BTW, I know that some nom sources have not submitted their list 2 of our 3 have not as of yet (the third only arrived on Fri. Dec 22)

    I asked a friend of my s how his file was coming...he said he was getting started on it...he didn't want to put all that effort into something until he knew he had a nom(!!). I wonder how many other kids are thinking similarly.

    I am complete except for a waiver on braces but other than that I completed mine at the beginning of this month.

    (and I thought I was procrastinating???) :rolleyes:

    I'd say at or below 50%, but I have no way of backing that up.

    My sister is a freshman at usafa and she says that about 1/3 of the appointments were already given out. It would be best to submit everything ASAP.

    Are you waiting for dodmerb to qualify you for the 1st time or is it a remedial.

    Are you sure you're not looking at the dodmets website instead of the DODMERB website?

    well, i read on their website that when they are notified of an applicant being appointed, they will send the qualified medical papers to the academy, but i am going to call and ask them to update my status ASAP

    so i called DODMERB today, and it turns out i just have to send in some records of a recent minor injury, but other than that i am good :). i am going to send the papers in as soon as possible, but the medical status can be completed after march 1, right?
