    After your medical status changes to qualified, what then? Do they automatically notify the academies?

    Thank you

    Congratulations! There is nothing for you to do. You should receive a letter in the mail in about a week giving more details of what to expect, at least they did for ROTC.

    Thanks

    Depends on how quickly the doctor returns everything to Concorde. In my DD's case, two weeks went by with nothing, even though they are supposed to send it within 48 hours. Concorde had to chase it down, once they did, it only took a few days until DODMERB reviewed it and another day for her portal to update. So for her it was almost 3 weeks.

    DoDMERB sends the results to the Academies. The candidate does not have to do anything.

    DS's status says COMPLETE-HOLD, what does that mean?

    I recall there is a document (pdf) from DoDMERB director (Larry) that explains everything. Link on the left side. Give that a try.

    @Sam2018.
    Statement taken from DoDMERB director referenced above.
    "A “CLOSED” status on the DODMETS website means they have FedExd the exam/history results to DoDMERB. A “COMPLETE HOLD” status means that Concorde is working with the examiners to obtain additional information. Upon receipt, Concorde will forward exam results to DoDMERB."

    DS called Concorde today. They said it is being held up because they didn't get the page about the reading passage. He called the clinic and she said she sent it again yesterday but she would be happy to send it again. Hopefully that will do it.

    My DD just had COMPLETE- HOLD appear as well, it said COMPLETE a few days ago and we just noticed the change. I'm hoping a phone call will give her some answers as well. Kinda frustrating!

    Just call Concorde tomorrow, they are extremely helpful. It does not have to be your daughter, they will talk to you as well. They will let you know if it is something they are waiting from the doctor or need from your daughter.

    DS's status changed today, everything forwarded to DodMerb. Hopefully he'll be all clear by the end of the week.

    We were able to get DD's Complete-Hold all squared away on Monday, DODMERB received it yesterday, and today she's Qualified!! That was so fast, hallelujah! She was stoked to see it, one more step done!
