My son just got awarded 4 year Army ROTC scholarship. Now the fun begins with DoDMerb and what not. In general, how long does it take to take care of all this. I already learned that there is no chance that we will take care of this by the end of the year, which would have been so nice (a nice closure for all this, getting the scholarship, getting the ED acceptance, and being done with DoDMerb, etc). I understand that he has to visit doctors designated by the DoDMerb (I don't even know the proper terminology yet). We are in central NJ. Are these doctors easily accessible in our area or does he need to travel quite a bit? Thanks in advance for helping this complete ignoramus (me).
