Unfortunately I have to go back to redo my blood work. I've heard the returns can take a couple months depending on their workload.

Thats insane. My cut off date is the 29th. Interviews are Feb. 5th. Im trying to stay on top of them to make sure I hit that date. What did you have to go back to do blood work for??

My hematocrit level was .2 low. Which is my fault. I barely ate the day before and then fasted for the blood draw. Inconvenient lesson learned.

Hopefully you can get yours back in time. Luckily there's a WOFT board every other month scheduled.

Get some food in you and you will be fine. Yeah hopefully! If you knew my horror story like the other 50% of those on here with stories then youd be begging to get in ASAP. Good luck to you.

I've been working with my recruiter for 12 months now. It's been one hell of a process. I imagine there are far worse stories than mine.

As for the blood I'm not worried. The Marine Corps tested every year and I never had any issues. Just a bone headed mistake on my part.

My physical was ready to go nearly two months after part 2. I didnt have any waivers but I did have to see a cardiologist in between parts 1 and 2. Check around the usarec website and give a call if its been a while. I wouldnt recommend rushing anyone but asking around isnt the worst plan in the world.

This summer it only took them 2 weeks to get me my stamped phys -- and that was with my disability rating for back and knees. I was pretty surprised. Good luck
