    Unsure of what the process is. My DD had her eye and physical exams two weeks ago. Her DODMETS site just says that everything is sent. Is it now being reviewed by someone at DODMERB? If so, what is the usual expected wait to get a all clear?

    Has your DD set up her account on DoDMERB? That is where I first found out that I was qualified for whichever academies requested my medical results. The letter arrived a few days later. Once DODMETS has forwarded your results, your DS will be listed as "Under DoDMERB Review" on the DoDMERB portal until a decision is reached, be it remedial, qualified, or disqualified.

    (My study hall period ended as I was typing my last post, so I apologize for breaking this in two)

    It varies based on how many applications they are currently processing, anything unusual listed on your application/medical record, and what time of the year it is.

    My personal experience was as follows: DODMETS forwarded my information to DoDMERB on December 22nd, DoDMERB received my application on December 24th; DoDMERB reviewed my application on January 2nd (it was then that my DoDMERB portal said "Qualified", my respective SA portals a day later); the letter informing me of my status was mailed out January 7th; and it reached my house on January 9th.

    Again, every situation is unique. From other users and experiences I have seen on SAF, it can take anywhere from three days to a month or two to hear of your status. Mine was submitted over the holidays, and I was fortunate enough to hear back in eight days.
