Checklist Deadlines?

I submitted my candidate kit only to be greeted by the checklist... I know that the CFA is due by the application deadline because that's what the application instructions packet stated. Moreover, most of the transcripts and recommendations don't have to be submitted until two weeks after your application deadline. But is all of the other stuff (ALO interview and DODMERB) also due by the application deadline? Nowhere on my portal or the instructions packet does it give me a specific deadline for the other stuff.

Not part of the deadline, they are out of your control.

However, you'd want to quickly complete them(pro-actively reach out to ALO find email/phone in portal) and submit DODMERB forms asap when they ask from you. Get the first available DODMERB schedule, get timeoff from work/school if needed.

We also got confused by this initially. But DS had completed this process successfully doing the above.

For specific questions, you can ask your MALO (contact info also in portal) and Team Silver (or Team Blue) whoever was assigned to you.

Respectfully, when did you start your application and when is your deadline?
Sorry, were you asking OP? Didn't want to highjack his query.

For DS, he started July 1 right after the kit opened but was "slow" in completing due to a time crunch with everything else. He got a Nov 1 deadline from USAFA but during that time there was a lot of confusion on deadlines because of the new portal process showing inconsistent dates. It has since been resolved.

The deadlines are not the same for everyone, you need to follow the dates given to you in your portal or your file will be closed as incomplete (DS got this warning on Nov 2).

Yeah I was asking OP but I appreciate you contributing too!
