Have you talked to your CO? Already scheduled mid tour leave? You might be able to schedule your mid tour leave around the testing window. It may make for an early leave but at least you'd get the test in.I don't get back until February. So the window they gave me just isn't possible for me. I plan on contacting them and seeing what they say. Just wanted to see if anyone had heard of this issue before.
Even if you were in the States, you'd have been disqualified anyway for applying outside of 120 days.I’m on the same boat. Currently deployed and won’t get back until January. Well I didn’t think I’d get this far since I was outside the 120 day window.. at least I know won’t have to take another BQ on the next bid..

I don't think they really follow the 120 rule for OTS I think it is only for prior exp for some reason. I applied for the Aug 2016 OTS bid with about 180 days left and got a TOL, but I also applied for the prior exp bid in September when I had about 160 days until separation but didn't get a TOL because I wasn't in the 120 day mark.Even if you were in the States, you'd have been disqualified anyway for applying outside of 120 days.
