Well if the rater reads all your medical evidence and other evidence  such as your work records Dr's Reports  -opinions  ect,,,ect,,,  in my opinion the rater should rate you fairly depending on all your symptoms ,  if you request IU be given  then the rater should look at all evidence...if the C&P Examiner checked all the boxes Yes   THEN THIS IS A FAVORABLE EXAM. 

Those PTSD Examiners  watch your body language and watch every part of your body movement  eye contact, the way you dress ect,,,ect,,,  and the way you answer questions.

so in that they come up with their on conclusions  (jmo)

but evidence will and should prevail.

If you have all the evidence that your PTSD has got worse   then you will more likely get an increase   ..it don't need to be 100%  but your next percentage is 100% for PTSD  and  filing for IU is actually filing for an increase!!!

Just wait and see how they rate you.....my guess is you will probably be inferred to IU...even if they don't give you the 100% scheduler rating.

 Also a  VA Voc -Rehab  Unemployment letter stating that your un feasible to retrain at this time  due to your S.C. Disability is  a golden ticket to IU.

 

Without seeing your files its hard to say for sure  but from what you report here  I am thinking you will be boosted up to 100%scheduler 

VA is darn good at keeping a veterans % where its at and just infer the IU...its your option to Appeal if you disagree.

I'd be happy with the IU.

The answer to that question is because "the VA signs the C and p doc's checks" so they get to tell the doc what to say, and we dont.  

You, too, probably took orders from your employer, and sometimes even if those orders conflicted with your own opinions or a poplular opinion.  

Trust me, we dont like it either..big time.  If you get denied (likely), then you will need to hire YOUR IMO doctor (so you sign their checks), and you are much more likely to get a favorable c and p exam.  

Remember the golden rule..the guy with the gold makes the rules and that's not us.

I agree with broncovet also be sure to use a specialist to rebut the C&P Examiner!

  a specialist usually wins out over just   a paid  Dr.   private Dr paid by the VA.

So make sure the private specialist goes in to more details about your condition  ect,,,ect,, and he writes his credentials down  or maybe on his letter head ect,,,ect,,,

I agree with broncovet and Buck52 but I would wait until I get a denial before I hire an IMO doctor.  These exams can be $2,000 and more in some cases.  Wait until you are appealing a denial before you go to that expense.  My last IMO we waived local review and went straight to the BVA.  As broncovet states it is a travesty that we need to hire our own doctors to refute bought and paid for medical opinions but that is the system we are fighting.
