Does your packet require any waivers? If so, theres a good chance youll miss this board. There are various channels the packet goes through. Also, if you have to make corrections to your packet, thatll set you back as well. My packet required no waivers and I had one very small correction to make to one memo, so the recruiter who contacted me informed me to send the correction straight to him. All in all, I went from initial submission to board ready at USAREC in a week. I also submitted after the 22 MAR deadline. You may have a chance, just be as proactive as possible. Follow up with your packet as much as you can. Heres how mine worked out. Submitted packet on a monday afternoon, received a phone call from a recruiter tuesday morning about one minor correction, the rest of my packet was solid. Resubmitted correction within two hours of notification. Was informed 30 minutes later that my packet was then pending secondary quality control at usarec. Received an email on wednesday stating that my packet was now pending qualifications at usarec and that id have to contact my local recruiter for a status on my packet. Luckily, i have one on my post, so every other day, i walked in their office asking about its status. I believe it was finally board ready the monday after the weekend. I checked on its status on wednesday the following week after my initial submission and saw for myself that my packet was board ready. I hope this helps.
