    I am wondering the process for scheduling these. DS had his initial exam around 9/2013, accepted a 4yr AROTC scholarship, contracted and is currently MS2. Since it has been 2 years since the exam, when will he be scheduled, and will the process to initiate it be the same: a letter in the mail?
    Also, as he goes to school 7 hours from home, will they schedule it near his school, or near home? I know he will eventually find out about all of this, however, I would love a heads up as he is also applying to study abroad next semester. Thanks!

    Why does he need another Dodmerb exam? My son only did one during the scholarship process, prior to dive school and at IBOLC.

    I thought they have to get them every 2 years?

    The 2 year thing is for re-applying for rotc/sa/enlisting etc. The physical is good for 2 years. Next physical should be a pre-commissioning.

    Oh thanks for clarifying that! Here I thought they had to have a new one every 2 years.

    For Marine options, is the physical given at Officer Candidate School (OCS) the same thing as a pre-commissioning physical?

    No. There will be another physical late during his senior academic year, Not sure if he will need to take action on this. DS's college was close to Ft. Jackson so they just took the unit there for these physicals. YMMV.
