I took my dodmerb test in Nov 4 2016, and got a decision in Nov 28 2016. I received one remedial


R251.51 Consult - Applicant's private physician for ear wax removal/TM evaluation

I got the letter Dec. 12. Family problems and other issues arose. I got the test and records done and turned them in Feb 22 2017. My ROTC det emailed the records to them and it has been a week and it has not shown up in my portal that dodmerb has not received my records yet. I do not know what to do at this point and I do not know how long these processes take.

It took you over 2 months comply with the remedial request and now that you have submitted your response and waited a week after your det submitted your results, you are nervous that it is taking too long.

Best way is to work through your chain of command, but wait at least another week.

DS remedial posted about 10 days after we scanned/emailed it in. Snail mail will add a few days. Always ask DODMERB to confirm receipt for emails or send registered via USPS...too important for something trivial to be lost.

The DoDMERB process is different for those already in college working through their ROTC instructors. These cadets/applicants must go through their cadre/detachment. The communication method with DoDMERB from ROTC detachments is defined by their approved procedures.

Generally - those already in an ROTC detachment don't have the option to communicate directly with DoDMERB unless DoDMERB initiates the communication.

OP - Follow the guidance of 5 day and work through your chain of command.

Thanks for the clarification. I realized after I posted that ROTC may be a bit different.

ah1998....follow the advice offered by the member whose screen name is 5 day

Wait at least 2 weeks for your portal to update. Then, if it is not updated, work through your chain of command to see what needs to be done.

What do you mean by follow the guidance of 5 day?
Work through the chain of command. There was an issue on another thread when a ROTC program member failed to do that. Unwelcome sonsequenes. Work through your chain of command.
