    As a matter of curiosity I think the October board (now the November Board) has finished. What do they do next? Does anyonE know the process from now until we find out?

    That remains one of the big mysteries of life. I don't think anyone outside of Cadet Command really knows what goes on in the process.

    At some point your status page will update if you are offered a scholarship, if you are not offered a scholarship your page will remain the same as it is now. There is no notification if you do not receive a scholarship.

    After the notification you will receive a formal offer letter, you will have 30 days to accept or decline the offer. The letter will tell if your scholarship is a 3yr, or 4yr, and will list the schools offered if more then one.

    Thanks for the info!

    So if you get offers for two schools but you wont find out which school you got into until after 30 days, then what do you do?

    Sorry if this is a basic question and obvious.

    You accept the offer to the school you prefer. If you get accepted to that school great. If you don't get accepted then you will have to ask Cadet Command if you can transfer the scholarship to the school you got into. If they say yes, great. If they say no you have some more decisions to make.

    Does anyone know when those who receive a scholarship the 1st board receive notification? Is it usually about a month after the board convenes? Thank you!

    If you didn't get one yet, don't stress too much. I didn't find out about mine until January last year (after the December board) and a good friend of mine didn't get his until after the last board (February or March). The waiting sucks, but just keep working hard, pray, and cross your fingers!

    Was told by the recruiting officer at one of my schools that offers would go out about two weeks after the board, so nobody should be hearing anything for at least another week.
