    Hi All,
    I received an LOA last month through EA. My nomination interview isn't until the end of this month. However, I received an email from admissions saying to check my portal. When I did, it was a letter of consent I need to sign in order to have my criminal records checked.. My only confusion is that the first line says "Congratulations on your appointment..."
    Does this mean I received an appointment?

    Do you have any nomination at all (Presidential, JROTC, etc)?
    What is your status listed as on the portal? Appointment Offered?
    Did you receive a "deferral" notice today or no word yet?
    DD received same criminal background check letter today on the portal but we knew she already had an appointment.

    I don't have any form of a nomination and I received an LOA a few weeks ago. There was no change on my portal regarding my appointment. It still says "Letter of Assurance."This is partly why I'm confused. I'd assume this letter would only go out to appointees and not LOA recipients.

    Congratulations to your DD!!

    This just happened to my DS too. We called admissions, the person said to hang tight, that they cant upload a nomination until the correct office gets them and that was about it. In my personal opinion I think these letters are very possibly a mistake. It's not easy though when you get this and you have an LOA, and are still awaiting word on your nomination having received the LOA on October 30, and finished your interviews on December 6th. A few more weeks and at least we will have an answer on the nominations. So the big wait continues...

    UPDATE it was a mistake - still LOA status until we hear from any nominating source.

    I just received an email from admissions as well. I guess we will all wait until the end of this month! Good luck to your son.
