    Now this is what DS has been waiting for:

    Transcript: Received
    SAT/ACT Scores: Received
    Interview: Received
    Physical Fitness Test: Received
    School Choice: Received
    Academic Major: Received
    Medical: Not Received
    Cadet Background and Experience Form: Received

    Anyone still waiting on items to be updated ... be persistent in following up to make sure your items get marked as received.

    It took us several follow-up emails, a few phone calls, and a good relationship with the ROO at DS' #1 school to get some of these items updated.

    Good luck to everyone during the first board review.

    Bingo, that is always the key. Get to know the ROO and PMS at the #1 and #2 schools, and it will probably pay dividends.

    DS is still waiting for the last one to turn to "received". It's the transcripts which the counselor says were sent 2 weeks ago. I am going to put him on the phone as soon as he's home from school. Hopefully they have just not been entered yet.

    Mine looks the same, but I just wanting to confirm something. The Medical portion will not be done until after the applicant has been offered a scholarship correct?

    That is generally correct. Sometimes it happens before, and nothing should be read into that... but in any case it's initiated by the Army. You just need to sit back and wait, and wait, and wait. :rolleyes:

    What happens next?

    So now that DS's status page is all marked "received" except the medical, what happens next? I know the first board is in October. Will the status page change to indicate if he is being boarded at the first round?

    Your son's status page will not change unless he is awarded a scholarship, it will continue to stay as it is. There is no notification when he is seen by a board.

    Now it becomes a waiting game, there will most likely be a thread started after the board meets, a place where all those waiting will hang out and stress out together. It does help to pass the time.

    Best of luck to your son.
