    Congratulations Bizzy1013. Very exciting! What conditions need to be filled for you to receive an appointment?

    I am not certain as of yet. It just updated this morning and no other communication has been sent. I have passed my CFA and qualified for DODMERB.

    Sounds like all you need might be a nomination. That is sometimes a big hurdle, so make sure your members of Congress know you have a LOA. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Are you announcing that you have an appointment or that you have an LOA?

    How long ago did you complete your application and CFA before they updated the system to show LOA?

    Gator, I applied the first day it opened and pushed to complete all necessary paperwork required by USMMA. I was really early in the window.

    Where on the USMMA portal does the LOA appear?
