    DS finished all parts of the ROTC application.

    On the dashboard all areas are green and listed as complete or approved with the exception of two yellowed areas:

    Next to PFA it (in yellow) says SENT. However under uploads the PFA is listed in Green which means "Required documents that have been approved will have a Green Check."

    Another Yellow is next to STATUS. When that page is clicked the Additional Remarks section is filled out and saved.

    Now he is trying to figure out how to send it.
    Does he send it?
    Has anyone finished. I feel like we are staring at the dashboard at one final button to push and we cant figure it out. (He already emailed CC)

    thanks a bunch

    Vista, ours also is like that. We have SENT next to PFA and guidance counselor. Yellow on academics, even though transcript is received and approved. I don't think we sent the app, I think it is just "there" for CC to send to the Board to review...however, I could be very wrong about that! And, I am assuming that once the interview is done, that will be reflected on this app someplace.
    When we asked CC why PFA said sent, when we mailed the document in, and it appears under approved and downloads, they answered, and it sounded like even though we mailed the signed form from the coach, that he still had to fill out the e-mail, which they said they would re-send. That made no sense to me....we just need to remind the coach to send it in.

    Answered this on your previous thread. Let me know what CC says about there being an official way to "send" it.

    no reply at all.
    My son has sent a total of four email inquireries to CC since he started this process months ago.

    The first one asked if he can interview at a school other than the five listedon his portal, this was answered (though the answer was baffling).

    CC never replied to any other of his inquires.

    One was regarding PFA "sent status" versus "approved status" as listed in uploads.

    DS also contacted them to let them know that coach never received an email which is why it was faxed and emailed to CC versus uploading PFA.

    Son also emailed and asked why status is marked as incomplete when everything else is marked as completed or approved.

    He has never gotten a response. He is leaving for Italy for ten days and we want to make sure all is in before he goes but cant figure out how to press forward.

    Were it me I'd be looking for phone numbers and "dialing for dollars". Don't know how to point you though, other than that. Good luck Vista!

    EDIT: Have your son bring me back some pasta please.

    THANKS kinnem!!!

    Son followed kinnem's advice, tracked down phone number and called.

    The person who answered was rushed but helpful.
    1.) there is no final button. status will remain yellow-incomplete because that link is broken. Son is ready for first board and all tabs are now green (except for yellow status button)
    2.)There does need to be an email conformation through the link you provided for your coach that confirms the PFA scores that you faxed or emailed for upload. (on our end There does seem to be confusion about this as the coach said he never got the email, but CC said they had email verification and after the phone call changed the PFA to complete-however his boxing and wresting coaches work together and one could have verified and not let the other know since they both administered )

    ONCE AGAIN, Id like to thank kinnem for his YEARS of faithful shepherding though the system(s)


    please pray he makes it out of dodmerb hell.....,

    Just to clarify: The last DS checked with the coach that administered his PFA, he had not yet received an email from CC. However, the status for the PFA on the dashboard says "Approved". DS assumed that since he uploaded a copy of the completed & signed PFT form, that everything was accepted, processed, and complete. You mentioned that your DS status for the PFA says "Complete". Did you mean "Approved", or does it literally say "Complete"? If it says "Complete", DS needs to follow up with coach and/or CC.

    Thx!

    Will the info about schools to interview with on the portal appear once the PFT is submitted along with the transcript and SAT/ACT scores?

    I know DS got his notification after uploading the signed PFT form and a screen shot of the test scores. I'm not sure if I'm remembering correctly, but I think he had also uploaded a copy of his transcripts before he received notification,as well.

    On that link, it says everything has been received for me. Then it says "You have been selected to interview" even though I already interviewed and it says Ive interviewed on my actual application portal? I'm just going to assume that I'm done.

    Thanks for the site info! For DS, it says everything received except medical. He also interviewed. The part I am concerned with is on the scholarship app site, it still says academics pending, and under guidance counselor form, it still says sent. Also, for the coaches e-mail, it still says sent, even though they have the mailed copy of the PFT, signed by the coach.
    DS is double checking with the coach today that he sent the e-mail back about the PFT (even though we already mailed it), and will check tomorrow with guidance if he can get anywhere near the office (first day of school).

    SOMEHOW, my File Upload box went from completed (green) back to incomplete (yellow). It says my PFA Verification and Guidance Counselor forms have not yet been approved, although it said that they were approved 3 weeks ago! How could they go from approved to not approved?!

    This is so not fair! What if I have everything in the day before the board and they have a problem like this again?
