See the Short Notes When Reviewing your OMPF page for some guidelines to help you review and prepare your file. Your file is appearing before the board in your place; take your time and make sure it is complete and accurate. Three parts of your file -- your photograph, your microfiche and your PQR -- contain more than 95 percent of the information on which the selection board members will decide whether or not to select you for promotion, school attendance or QMP. You must not ignore the importance of that fact. REVIEW YOUR FILE!
