Will My Promotion Packet for SFC Still go to the Board if I Failed to Validate my Packet?

If an NCO is eligible for the E7 board, updated and corrected errors on their ERB, but omitted clicking the "validate" button. Will the NCO's record still be considered for selection?

Board files are automatically locked and validated once MyBoardFile closes and will therefore be viewed by the board.

So yes-your records will still go before the board. The problem is if you do not get promoted you cannot come back and ask for a STAB just because you did not validate your records and maybe forgot to add or fix something.
