I met points before they came out, but was told there was nothing I could do since S-1 did not put them in before the 8th. I was also in the process of PCSing so I think they just did not want to do any work. I have since PCSed and was told I can get my promotion backdated. I looked up in the reg and 600-8-19 section 3-3 states: The promotion authority can promote if I did in fact meet the cutoff score. I have my PPW worksheet showing I had the points before they were released. I am going to take this up my new chain of command soon and want to know if anyone has experience with this.
