I am shooting for this board as well but I’m still waiting to go to MEPS for my physical. It’s going on 3 months now

MEPS has been my biggest hurdle because of an absence of medical records. There has been a lot of back and forth. Now I am strangely looking forward to it, probably just to get it over with.
 
My interview was not done right away. They kept pushing me to the right cause of workup cycle. I tried scheduling myself but they wanted my department head to be involved who is super busy

I did interviews with CO's and XO's outside my command.

A fellow bio nerd! I am waiting on MEPS, and I just figured out I need to get a waiver. Hopefully the latter doesn't take very long.
That's awesome! How long have you been waiting for MEPS, last I checked my OR told me expect something mid March and still haven't heard anything. Getting kinda worried since haven't heard any update. I don't need any waivers as of yet, but I'd like to have some breathing room just in case. Seems like sometimes they are fast, sometimes it can take a while.

I started my application in January. The biggest hurdle was all the corrections I needed to do for the medical prescreen form and getting medical records. I'm still waiting on my letter's of recommendation forms to go out. I hear the waivers can take a few days up to a few months. I'm not too worried if I don't get my application in for the March 27th deadline. I can wait a few extra months till the next one (July 8th for the Aug 19th board) if need be. I'm really set on being an officer so I will jump through whatever hoops I must.

I would reach out with the deadline drawing near. No one is going to care about your career more than you.
