In regard to the 60 day thing, I think they just added that because the fall board people didn't have it on their paperwork. Perhaps it is to incentivize people to move through the process intently? But do you guys really think they'll revoke your PR if you're still not through the process in 60 days? I think no, but who really knows?
Lol, if the military revoked your PR just because they took over 60 days to commission you, they'd be getting rid of a lot of acceptees.
So, we've talked S. Goodman; 1st) A huge Congrats. I remember you, you deserved it.
2nd) I'm commissioning this Friday (05/15) & I was PRed from the Fall 2014 Board. That should say it all . . . welcome to the USN.
But here's was my timeline to calm your nerves. I was told this process should take 3-months.
I was accepted 12/9/14, accepted the PR 12/18/14. I contacted around looking for a recruiter. In late 01/15 I was put in contact with one finally. MEPS (medical processing) took 12-hours on a day early-02/15. My packet was sent to Navy-Recruiting late 02/15. My COMDOCS (commissioning documents) came down from Congress (apparently this is a thing) 04/15 & was approved by SECDEF (also apparently a thing) in 04/15 as well. My recruiter set up an officer to commission me 05/15/15.
So in total 5+months from acceptance to commissioning date.
