"your claim is at the rating board for a decision and you will hear in 60-90 days" .

Being "At the Raters" can mean multiple things depending on why it is there. It might be there multiple times during the process. The claims
process isn't like tracking a FedEx package where each step brings the package closer to it's goal. Your claim may go back and forth between
development and the raters multiple times as new information leads to more requests of other agencies for verification. It also might go back and forth to the
VAMC for a C&P several times depending on how well the examiner documented the requirements of the decision maker. Knowing where it is and where it's
been doesn't provide a guarantee of "what's left". Some simple claims might be adjudicated in 6 weeks but more complex claims might take 18
mos or more. How busy is the VARO, How many issues are you claiming? How much evidence supporting the claim did you submit and how much evidence does the VA
have to try and obtain from other agencies? All of these things might affect your claim. They might also make decisions on some simple issues and defer the
more complex ones.
Here's a link to a GAO study regarding VA claims processing. Co-incidentally, it contains a flowchart of the claim process as it was in 2000:
Scroll down about two thirds the way to find the chart . You can see that there are many steps in the claims process so even if you're familiar with the
process you can't judge with any degree of accuracy how much longer your claim will be at any certain point.

"Don't be buffaloed by experts and elites. Experts often possess more data than judgment. Elites can become so inbred that they produce
hemophiliacs who bleed to death as soon as they are nicked by the real world." General Colin Powell

The biggest difficulty in determining how quickly you'll receive a decision right now is based on the priority processing of all Global War on Terror
You're talking about GWOT cases from combat zones right not just anyone active since the Sept 11?

You're not to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong, no
matter who does it or says it.
