    Any of this year's new interns get their orders yet? I haven't and am starting to worry about getting my move taken care of.

    I'm waiting for Army USUHS/OBC orders. I was supposed to get them 3 weeks ago, and was told the reason they haven't arrived is that the "fund site" is screwy. I don't know how long it's going to take to set up the move, but I am worrying about it nonetheless.
    I was hoping to get out of my current apartment ASAP since I graduate on Friday :D and I'm running out of loan money :( . Looks like I'm going to have to pay more rent. I hate waiting.

    got mine almost 3 weeks ago (they're dated 30March), and have my moving stuff all lined up. i'm going to be at walter reed, but i can't imagine your duty location affecting getting orders.

    sorry to hear about the delay, but if it's any consolation the moving stuff can be arranged in about an hour or so at your closest army transportation office.

    sorry i can't help you out more :(

    Yeh, got my orders a few days ago. Now I just home the movers can come on time.

    BTW, do we need 60 on each event on the PT test or 70, I can't remember.

    passing is 60

    If you get a 290 or above, though, you get a patch for your PT uniform.

    I imagine that in the medical corps, a 60 in each event is all that anyone cares about.

    Still no orders. And no explanation from Army, despite my prodding.
