My son, who was on a 4-year NROTC scholarship, was put on MLOA during his senior year of college. He has since graduated but is not commissioned and receives no pay or benefits from the Navy. He checks in with his old NROTC unit on a regular basis and submits his BUMED paperwork through the unit, but has no direct contact with BUMED. He is in limbo--the Navy won't make a decision about whether he can serve, and he can't apply for "career" jobs or graduate school because the Navy could decide at any time to call him up for active duty. Is there a limit for how long the Navy can take to decide whether to commission him?
