    So, my son was informed by his BGO today that a decision has been made on his appointment status but he, the BGO, doesn't know the what that decision is. The BGO was told by the USNA that if he was appointed they want the student to find out from their MOC or, if denied, here it from the USNA via the TWE. They also told him it takes about 2-3 weeks for the student to find out, it's been a little over one week so far............this is killing me!

    But I am of happy a decision, one way or the other, is coming soon so we can move on.

    What I was trying to say is that his application has been reviewed and the USNA has made their decision on his status - appointed or NOT appointed. We only know that a decision has been made, we don't know what that decision is, though. The BGO tried to find out but they wouldn't tell him.

    Honestly, I'm not too optimistic right now after finding out yesterday that he did not get the NROTC scholly and that it's also been a little more that 2 weeks since we found out from the BGO they have decided on his app.

    Other options are in place but these were/are the top two.

    I can't imagine the pins and needles you are on, muffinman! I don't pretend to know anything (just the mom of a candidate), but I'm surmising that this early in the game there are not many TWEs going out while USNA works through noms and NWL, so I'm thinking odds are good you're looking for a BFE. I'm sure more knowledgeable members of the forum can address my wishful thinking.

    I contacted the office of DS' two nominators last week to see if we could get an idea about when we might hear something, but I was not able to get any information. DS hasn't heard anything from his BGO. Based on your story, I think I like it that way.

    NROTC is a completely different animal. Time of application, Tier, school selected all factor into it.

    You're certainly correct regarding the first two, but school assignment is a completely separate board process that occurs after it's determined to award a scholarship. At least that's my understanding from here: http://naval.dasa.ncsu.edu/sites/na...sitors/Scholarship application info-2013F.pdf

    This may be a good sign. DS waited a month after finding out he was appointed to get BFE. The pretty package takes some time to prepare. Plus, they give the MOC a heads up in case they want to notify the appointee themselves. Hoping your wait is fruitful and over soon.

    Kayaker & 2018midmom, I sure appreciate your optimism! I am not negative but I do tell my son to be prepared for the worst and hope for the best....and have other options in place!

    Thanks.

    @ Kinnem - I do know when my DD received her NROTC offer it specified UNC which was her first choice (plan B). She had listed 5 in order as required. She applied in the summer and knew early in her senior year after the first board. The problem you get is slots fill up at each school as you get deeper into the year. I would guess with highly qualified candidates they might work to find a school but that requires some shuffling (simply my guess).
