    It will most likely be the end of March at the earliest, if not then, probably around early April. But I may very well be wrong; I've read in the past that sometimes this was not the case, taking CC over a month to release results.

    Does anyone know the inside into the process and why it takes 2-4 weeks to release the names?

    I think I tried to answer this question on the other thread you started.

    Besides what I posted below, the Board is not a one day event, it can take up to a week or more to go through all the applications. This was the last board so they would need to go through all the new applications as well as all the applications that have been rolled over.

    Once the board makes there selection CC then has to decide school allocations. Again since it's the last board they need to figure out who goes where. Add to this all the applicants that have declined the scholarships or might decline because they accept an appointment to a SA or a different ROTC program (Many applicant apply to more then one ROTC program) and it just adds more time to the equation.

    And as I said below, who even knows how the current budget situation is affecting the whole process.

    If things follow the same process as the last board, it seems CC is waiting to make status changes until they have written and sent the official letters which adds a bit more time to the wait.

    Responded on a similar thread as well - I spoke with someone in the Cadet Command office last week and was told the time frame for results coming out would be late March through the middle of May.

    Middle of May? The grey hair may be gone by then!....

    DS will be attending North Georgia (formerly NGCSU) or UGA. Any idea how he would stack up?

    3.40 unweighted GPA with 8 AP classes
    7 Varsity Letters 3- swimming 4 - lacrosse (didn't swim senior year to assume captain responsibilities/lead off season training for lacrosse)
    1100 on SAT
    27 composite on ACT with a 33 in English 25 math 24 Reading 27 Science
    PT 79 push ups - 55 curl ups - 6.23 mile
    Good work and volunteer history...
    Will major in International Studies/Russian

    I've also been told that he had a perfect score on his interview... don't know how much that matters....

    He's still being boarded for AFROTC, but feels like Army is his calling...

    ROTC is his chosen path... scholarship would be icing on the cake.

    I doubt middle of May is accurate. They know these kids are working to May 1 acceptance deadlines and I don't think they expect them to send a deposit to all the schools on their list to which they were accepted.

    It's really hard for anyone on these forums to give an idea of how someone "stacks up"

    ... but if you insist, I would say that your DS has a good profile. PT looks great. GPA is a little low (guessing it tanked a little because of AP classes?) as well as leadership. But the "good work/volunteer history" might be able to compensate for that, to give your DS a more holistically well-rounded application.

    Best wishes for Board 3!!

    I hope you're right, because that would be my concern - but reason I was given was they have an unusually high volume of applications and limited staff. Maybe this will prove to be a case of under promise and over deliver...
