Has anyone who recently submitted the release for the psych eval heard back from recruitment or the clinic that will do the test? Waiting to hear from mine for the 2 year redo.

Anyone here sent home from the college due to COVID? If so, have you heard of a return date? Had my clearance interview today and am excitedly waiting my chance.
I would say be prepared to wait for a while. A number of us were either sent home or had our start dates postponed due to covid. From what people are saying, it is being staggered in approx. 1 month intervals, with the first group having gone back only a week or two ago.

Hey treeego, yesterday I received a confirmation email from recruiting to say that the 'release was received'. I am guessing the actual 'wait' for an appointment/contact now begins...

I sent the release in over a week ago when they first asked for it, so it may just be taking them time to go through everyone to confirm they received it.

I'm still at the initial psych stage. Hopefully you guys' nearing renewal will get a similar response to the one Kevlar received.
