    Has anyone heard if they were selected from the last NROTC board that had a probable update around 11 March?

    DS has not heard anything. His application was completed early February so if it was boarded it would have been late in the cycle.

    DS has not heard anything yet. Portal still says, "No decision has been made..."

    His app was complete first week in January.

    DD was turned down, not totally surprised as she was very late and only in for the final board.

    I have a question for you if you know. Does the portal still have the instructions at the bottom for changing school choices? Thanks!

    Just looked and the directions on how to request a change to college choices/order no longer exists on the portal (at least for my DS).

    It does not. Status is still "no decision has been made on your application"

    Interesting. Wonder what loosing that selection means? Maybe an award is pending. Can only hope.

    Yeah, the portal for my DS changed last week to remove those directions as well. Hope your DS receives good news this week.

    The portal for my DS also changed that way. Let's hope it means good news! Best of luck.

    This will be an exciting weekend. Most of my DS schools will be notifying him on their decisions. And hopefully a NROTC scholarship.

    I think the school change thing is off because it's simply too late in the process. I think if you are awarded a scholarship though, you can always request a transfer

    Just on edge waiting for decisions like many of us. Blogs are great. You can read text so many different ways. Decisions did not come out at 3 pm.

    One of the best things about going camping is that the world around just shuts down. No internet no cell phones and no tv. Just enjoy the sounds of nature and that smokey smell from the campfire that follows you into your tent after a great day.

    Sorry for the rambling.

    DS just received an email "Congratulations on your selection for the NROTC scholarship" today March 10. Portal has been updated and he has be awarded a 4 year scholarship. I guess my son is going to be a sailor when he grows up. :)

    So does the applicant get an email that tells them they got the scholarship or does the email tell the applicant to check the portal? I'm just trying to figure out if there is no email, there's no need to check the portal? Thank you for any clarification anyone can offer.
