    I know that we probably have a few more weeks of waiting as the letter arrived just last week that said my son's app was going to the review board. Is it disadvantageous to be reviewed later? The available spots left appear to be so few (Objee posted on another thread) and couldn't they technically "run out" of room before they look at all the applications? How does admissions manage to pull that off?

    Just a guess...

    ....maybe they reserve a certain number of spots for each "batch" of applications.....

    Did you read the thread that said add approx. 5 weeks to the date on the letter saying you've been sent to CCEB? We are going on week 6 right now. So....we'll see if anything comes soon.

    My son was reviewed late last year as well. He didn't get in, but others in his same position did. I am guessing there is some science to deciding how many get in from each round, and that they do save some for the end rounds.

    Good luck. Waiting is so hard. :rolleyes:

    This is a nice little group, isn't it?

    I,too, hope our whole family gets to be part of the CG family. Nice folks all around, from what I have gleaned from this forum and the academy tour/interview.

    Back to waiting.....:thumb:
