Hi!! I'm applying for West Point class of 2011, but I have encountered some problems with the DoDMERB process. I scheduled my appointments right after I got home from SLS, and had my eye exam in late June. Unfortunately, at the facility where I was scheduled to have the medical/audiologist exams, you need parental consent, and my parents weren't willing to take me to the exam or sign consent. So my mom called in, canceled my appointment, and withdrew me from the application process. I talked to Concorde, and reactivated my "account", and tried to find a new facility to go to, where I didn't need a parent's signature, but had no luck. So the helpful Concorde person called DoD where they discussed my situation and the advice I got was to wait until November 28 (1 week before I turn 18), call Concorde, get the name of a facility to schedule a medical exam with, and go on my own then. In the meantime, my status will be kept as "partially completed" (since I was able to go to an eye exam). Soooo the question I have is: Is this going to cause a lot of problems? I know that I have been repeatedly told, by many different people, that you want to get these tests over with quickly, and now I am getting it done the complete opposite of quickly!! Is there going to be a serious chance that I am going to have to reapply to the class of 2012 in the event that any problems arise?? And also, I don't know if since this is the DoDMERB board people here would be too knowledgeable about this, but will the fact that I'm getting my tests done so late adversely affect my candidacy at USMA? Or are they completey separate? I am trying to get in touch with admissions there and explain my situation, so I will find out from them, but if anyone else has any type of experience with this or anything, I would like to hear from that side, as well. Thanks!!!
