    How long after the VA is done should it take to get the 199?

    I know it depends person to person, but my PEBLO said that all of her other soldiers had their 199s back very soon after their case was done with the VA ratings portion. As in, literally a couple days later for everyone else. My ratings at the VA were done the first week of July and so far I...

    Don't let it Drive you Crazy

    This is my current timeline: There are several factors that have played into the delays in my timeline, but I have learned that the "Goals" and "Averages" can be ridiculously off. If the DRAS finds any kind of clerical mistake from the VA it will delay the VA Rating Portion by AT LEAST 30...

    Can you only request a VARR during IDES?

    Can you only request a VARR during IDES or can you request a VARR after you're discharged? If you can only request a VARR during IDES, is there a way to appeal your rating after you're out? I haven't gotten my ratings back yet. Just wondering.

    How does DOD decide what to rate you?

    I never understood why DOD ratings always seem to be lower than VA ratings. How does the DOD decide their ratings? What information do they go off of to determine their ratings?
