The only thing I need for my application is the medical exam, where thankfully I was fully qualified. However, I took the exam December 15th and concordia said they’d send the exam directly to USNA, but my portal says the medical examination has not yet been received. I tried calling concordia a couple weeks ago about it, and they said this was a common problem that candidates at the location have been having. It’s getting close to January 31st though, and it’s still not in. also trying to be as competitive as possible by getting things in early. Is this a problem that others have been having? Am I missing something???

GENERAL NOTES FOR ALL ON THIS THREAD:

1. Sometimes it's important to provide ALL the information so folks might not be unintentionally mislead.

2. There are two exams, Optometric and Medical for the most part. In some cases, there is a separate location for audiology.

3. Putting down ALL dates of ALL exams is helpful, but equally important is, "when were you authorized to take the exams?" Legitimate Delays/procrastination in scheduling your exams, is certainly a component of when the DoDMERB review is completed. So often times, there are more to the story than what might be indicated in the post/thread....Just sayino_O

I didn't think that DoDMETS (Concentra) sends anything directly to the academies? My understanding is your initial exams (medical, optometry) are sent to DoDMERB for review and determination of Q or DQ or request for AMI? Both our son's DodMERB portals showed updates before their academy/ROTC portals updated. You may wish to check your DoDMERB portal first before calling USNA, then give your assigned technician an email or phone call..

FACTS:

DODMETS does NOT send anything directly to the Academies.
DODMETS sends everything to DoDMERB for evaluation.
DODMERB renders the decisions of MEETS or does NOT MEET medical standards.

Similar situation for my DS. His exam status has been 'complete' for a while and nothing has been sent to MERB. The METS website said it 'should' change to pending after a certain date (which has already passed) and still in the 'complete' status. He sent an email inquiry this morning asking if there has been any updates. Any other advice?
