    DS just checked his scholarship status page and where it said "you have been selected for an interview" it now says "you have been selected for a four year scholarship" my question is, can you take the scholarship to a different school than the ones they pick for you, if you get accepted to them later on in the year?

    Thanks again, I have been lurking for some time, but am super excited for my son!!!:smile:

    First off congratulations, the results came a lot quicker this year.

    The schools that the scholarship is awarded to will show up on the status page in about a week or so. You will probably receive a phone call from the ROO at the schools the award is for soon, you can call the schools he listed and ask them as well.

    Transferring schools is not easy, there will be a lot of discussion about transfers as the results come in.

    The hard to impossible transfers include:

    Transfer to a school outside the brigade
    Transfer to a more expensive school even in the same brigade

    That doesn't mean it's not possible, just getting more difficult to do.

    Again, congratulations, I would imagine this board will light up very soon.

    Yea! Really happy that results are coming out. Congrats to your son. Do they release results all at once or will results come out staggered through the weeK? No change here :rolleyes:

    Last year it took about 4 days or so for all the results to be released for the first board. There was a lot of speculation on this board on process CC used to release the awards, I don't think anyone ever figured it out.

    It seems odd that only one person has posted about a status change so far. Last year a large amount of people posted the status change all at one time, maybe the one change mentioned above slipped out early. It's all a mystery sometimes. Hang in there and good luck.
