    For those who already had their medical & eye exams and have been medically cleared, how long after your exam did it take?

    This is also what my DS portal says. I believe I'm right in saying it will show "incomplete" until Concorde receives the exams from both the Dr. and optometrist and then will show "closed" once they forward the results to DODMERB. I think at this point you will receive an email asking you to create and log in to your DODMERB account which will show, qualified, remedial etc...

    DD has "qualified" status on DoDMERB. However, her DodMETS site still says "complete" which means it hasnt been updated. Her service academy portal is not showing her DoDMERB, nor her high school transcript, which was sent to them 2 month ago. There must be some serious backlog. Oh, she created her account on DoDMERB on her own. She didnt get any type of notification from DoDMETS

    DoDMERB didn’t message her. She looked it up on their website, created an account and saw her results. I’m assuming there will be some sort of notification after August 17th? looks like their website says no changes until after then.

    Im confused. Do we create an account of the dodmerb website and schedule our exams through that or do we wait for them to contact us? (I am applying to SAs and ROTC, and have completed the required items to "trigger" dodmerb.)

    If I recall, sometime in July, my DD got an email to go on the DODMETS website to create an account. DODMETS is run by Concorde. The DODMETS website will have the info for the eye doctor and physical exam doctor to contact.

    She also got an email to establish a DODMERB account. Getting a DODMERB account set up isn’t really important until you’ve done your exams yet.

    She waited for an email telling to open a DODMETS account. Oddly enough, she triggered the DODMERB exam for the USAFA and USNA within a day of each other.

    You could probably try to create a DODMERB account now. All they need is your SSN and DOB I think.

    If you did trigger a DODMERB exam, you may already be in the database which will allow you to create an account.

    The first thing to do though is getting the contact info for the doctors through the DODMETS website

    That’s what we were told. You can create an account with dodmerb, but there’s really nothing you can do with it. Just waiting for the email for clearance to setup dodmets. They told us dodmerb was down until at least Aug 15 and wouldn’t get an email until that’s up and and running.

    I just found out today that I am “Commission Qualified” for USAFA. However, it still says that I’m “Under DoDMERB Review” for USNA, and it doesn’t say anything about USMA although my portal says “Scheduler Forwarded...” I was wondering, will my status for the other academies change fairly quickly from this point since I needed no waiver/remedials?

    There is no way of knowing where you are in the queue. Imagine thousands of hopeful applicants pouring their data into a system. The SA staff responsible for updating their system work through upload tasks as capacity and priorities allow.

    Time to absorb a basic military skill: “hurry up and wait.”

    DS is DoDmerb USAFA commission qualified and USNA qualified. DS messsge West Point and West Point said, they will wait awhile before they pull the result from AFA. They like DS to finish more in his application. Any one has DoDmerb qualified done with USMA? Just wondering if they have different qualifications. They said only one Dobmerb for all academies and rotc..good for 2yrs.

    DS has three letters on the Dodmerb site, all say basically the same thing, the US** then Qualified. But on the status page it still says under review and none of this has updated on the various portals. I wish I could remember how long it took to show up the last two times :/
