    Fingers crossed!

    It seems that that is a very GOOD sign, if you read the boards. Some have received good news shortly after a change, so hang on, it's gonna be a bumpy few days as you wait! :smile:

    Still no change for son

    Hoping that doesn't mean anything bad. Trying not to worry about it. The site goes down today, and with the weekend no changes would occur anyway. So, maybe next week we will see some movement?

    Have a great day everyone! :cool:

    STILL NO DoDMERB but....

    ...The appointment came today.....so for those seeing NO CHANGE, it didn't seem to matter for my son.

    Keep the faith! Will keep crossing fingers and toes for those who are waiting.

    Daughter applied early decision and received the dreaded deferral on Dec 21. She was heart broken. Now we see a status change on March 11, which the forums indicate as a good sign, but no correspondence since. On the other hand she has been offered a 1/2 athletic / financial aid package at another prestigious school.
    She is basking in the glow of "someone wants me". She was also informed by USNA that she is three QQQ’d and just waiting on a appointment (she has two nominations). At this point I am unsure if after 12 months of applying, completing the summer seminars, physicals that she doesn’t take the first offer received. She loved the summer programs, but has grown weary of the process. Hopefully she will reflect objectively on all offers. This could drag into May or longer. I have a friend whose son had been offered the prep school option last July,(‘07) after they had already placed a deposit on another school. They were able to recover the deposit and 3 weeks later their son was in New Mexico. He is now at USCG about to finish his first year.
    If there is one consolation, there are others sharing the same anxious overload
