    DD is in the middle of addressing multiple AMIs for the Marine Corps ROTC program, and got yet another letter generated by DoDMERB today, but can't access it because the DoDMERB website says it's down for maintenance! For 16 days!!!! How can she expeditiously get them the information they need when she can't even find out what they need? Maybe they will just clear it all up at indoc Great Lakes sector when she's there 22/July- 04/Aug. Anyone else in this position?

    Luckily got the remedial request on Friday and was able to access. I emailed the assigned DodMERB person and they can't even process what I sent until then.

    Same. It's ridiculous. Everything on OUR end is hurry up and get this done, and we do the best we can around two full-time work schedules to get the stuff in and it ends up being "Hurry up and wait." We got another remedial request on Friday as well, however, was unable to access it. Only God knows what that one will require. SO FRUSTRATING!

    That's a pretty good summation of military life in general. No better time than the present to get used to it.

    Your offspring won’t be alone at Great Lakes: DS discovered the down site tonight when putting gear together, can’t print the Qualified letter. So... emailing his unit contact and getting the Physical Form backup plan in place first thing in the a.m. Lesson learned: print it the minute you see it!! Don’t wait til you need it!

    Wisconsin, he’ll be a Sea Badger. These newly minted midshipmen are super lucky to get this chance to get some Navy training before they are also adjusting to college.

    Hurry up and wait. Welcome to the Marine Corps! :)

    Seriously though, pretty much everyone knows that DoDMERB is down right now and will continue to be down another 7 days.
    There is nothing they can do about it, and I'm sure they realize that there are thousands of folks out there who are frantic. Every authority
    waiting for input from DoDMERB right now will take the delay into consideration and give people leeway.
    It will be okay.

    Her contact at DoDMERB has been super helpful in corresponding via e-mail, and DD has taken care of everything she can to this point. To all those waiting, use that resource. They really are nice people!

    Does the website shut down affect the inputting of DoDMERB exam results for applicants or do doctors input it into the Concorde website?

    I’m sorry you have all this problem. DS had his eye exam last Monday and print out the forms two days ago for today’s medical exam. I check the site this afternoon, it was running. Fl-12!

    When you go to the DoDMERB site do any of you get the warning "Your connection is not private"? The url is http, not http (secure).

    Yes, and some browsers will not open the site at all I believe so I use firefox for most of the sites as it just warns you about continuing.

    How did he start the DODMERB process? From the portal? My DS has almost everything in and can't get DODMERB access

    I am not sure what academy send it out. My DS forward me the email he got and accidentally send it too to AFA. My DS applied to all summer seminar so he has preliminary application to all academies. I think it was AFA who sent my DS the Dobmerb or Naval academy.
