    Getting rediculous, it's been almost 3 weeks since my recruiter said that they were transfering records, both from the national guard, and as of last monday, from two different MEPS facilities. What gives? With everything computerized, and now having all paperwork going into a Database (for MEPS) it cannot possibly take this long. I can't sit around and loligag with this, getting in will determine whether or not I'm moving out of tallahassee, and I'm starting 6 classes tomorrow and won't have nearly as much time as I do now to get this taken care of.

    I'm just about ready to go to a different recruiter

    I've been trying to call my recruiter, and I call the office, and just get told everytime that "she's out." Last time I did talk to her, was after telling another recruiter about the situation, and him calling her, but then I had to call back to finally talk to her, to only get told "their still transfering paperwork from MEPS" this was last monday

    That dosn't make sense though. My former national guard recruiter was able to get paper work scanned and transferred over to MEPS within the same day with no issues

    If you are going from National Guard (state) to Active Duty (federal) it could take a while.

    Surprised it's not longer. I have been waiting 2 months to transfer to another unit (Reserve to Reserve), so just imagine how long yours can take.

    Going to try and reach my recruiter later to ask how long it's really going to take. If she says more then 5-6 weeks, then I'm going to have to find a new recruiter, cause I'm going to have to move back with my parents in south florida next month.
