    A box will appear below the nominations with a link to accept or decline your appointment. It also has a link to read instructions about the appointment process, but it isn't available yet.

    It should look like this:

    Awesome, thanks!

    Question: how long was it between when your nomination was entered into your portal and when your appointment box appeared?

    As you can tell right now I'm anxiously waiting for that box to appear :biggrin:

    About a week or two? It showed up after my certificate arrived in the mail.

    It seems to vary quite a bit.

    Last year DS and a couple others in our area received calls from MOC offices prior to either BFE or portal change. BFE arrv'd shortly afterward. From memory the BFE showed up prior to the portal appt box.

    Don't worry about the mail. The admission committee will not meet again until January.

    Appointment box changes

    My box appeared a couple days ago and the Appointment box appeared. I accepted. I believe that another box will appear within a week which asks for your Chest Size (inches), Shoe Size, and etc. Also, the extra info about R-Day and Dental Screening should appear by January (Is now grey).

    Ugh... does the dental screening mean I have to get ANOTHER medical exam? I figured two would be enough!!
