    Haven't gotten anything here. I e-mailed the ROTC admissions officer at my #1 school, he told me that the datebase hasn't been updated, so they may be a bit behind schedule.

    No letters, and no online status updates either. With the system being down a good part of the day today, that didn't help the anxiety level either.

    Looks like they haven't worked out all of the bugs from the first board yet... :frown:

    Just checked my app's status online and it's updated!

    "You may check your medical qualification status by visiting the Department of Defense Medical Examination Review"

    I think this means I got it? :confused:

    Hang in there jkrasinski! Plenty of time and scholarships are still available. Couple of months from now and you'll be laughing at how nervous you were in December.

    Have a safe and Happy Holiday.:thumb:

    So I emailed the scholarship officer at my #1 school and found out that I didn't actually get an offer, even though the site listed info on getting the DODMERB. I guess this means another month of waiting :unhappy:

    Did he say that you didn't get an offer from HIS school or that you were not yet being offered a scholarship at ANY school? Has the Army decided to go back to the previous method of requiring DODmerb physicals before approving a scholarship or did you perhaps speak to a PMS that has less of a clue about the system than the rest of us? Inquiring minds want to know......:eek:

    If your status changed to the DoDMERB thing, it may take a few days for ROTC departments and DoDMERB to get your application update. I remember emailing one of the PMS at one of my school choices, and them telling me I wasnt offered one yet. if the status says dodmerb, it will take a few days for everything to get updated, but you have received the scholarship.

    2nd Board review

    No update on mys son's status all day. There seems to be a lot of conflicting info. It seems from looking over the forum through the months CC changes their policies and procedures at a drop of a hat. I hope for all that have a changed status that that means you are in and Congrats. But just reading a recent update on this forum it appears that the update to you have been approved for an interview to DODMerb does not spell out that you have been approved yet. This makes the situation more stressfull for those with the change! Bottom line is you have to contact the PMS or the recruiting officer to get the real word. Everybody keep the faith and keep those fingers, and legs ect. crossed.

    Amazing how you and many parents on this site seem to be aware of this but the "professional" PMS personnel don't have a handle on how it works. :confused:

    Actually, it sounds as though the bottom line is that you have to contact the PMS or the recruiting officer to GIVE them the real word.:cool:

    He said that I was not offered any type of scholarship for the round. He also told me when had no idea why the system gave me the DODMERB info, which is why I'm guessing it was some type of computer error on the status site or on the actual CC database.
