    My DS NROTC coordinator told us they have only met once so far and that not to expect any results out until January.

    My portal updated today, I was awarded a 4-year scholarship! I had my app completed in August and was not Immediate Selection or anything. Hope this helps!

    DS portal also updated today. He was ISR and received his first choice school. Guess things in Pensacola are starting to happen.

    DS's portal went from the full page of information to nothing other than his social and birthdate. Not sure if I should be worried or not. LOL

    Congratulations. Get in shape and stay in shape so when you arrive you can immediately pass the PFT and the funds can start rolling. And oh yeah, keep your nose clean and no senioritis! :thumb:

    Congrats to your son grevar. Nice to get first choice school and to have this in his pocket. He's one outstanding kid! :thumb:

    PS. I don't envy him the decisions he has to make. I don't think I could handle the stress of it all. Keep him in bubble wrap.

    Anything specific you suggest I do to prepare (Aside from the PFT and Academics)? And I'll try not to give him a hard time :thumb:

    Other than to keep your nose clean, nothing I can think of other than working on organizational skills if its needed. I'm so excited for you! Already told my wife about it and when DS gets home for fall break tonight will be mentioning it to him.

    And try as you might, I don't think you could give DS a tough time. He's seen it all by now! :biggrin:
    Gosh, he'll be a senior when you get there. Time flies!!!!

    Congratulations! DS #2 was awarded to U Mich last year but was medically DQed. All is well, but...if if's and buts were candy and nuts, it'd be Christmas all year long.

    Best of luck!

    Not selected by first board?

    If my portal does not indicate that I have been selected for a scholarship, does that mean that I did not make it during the first board? Or possibly more notifications on first board will come later?

    Sowbug,
    Only the people in P-cola know for sure. Last year there were a couple of weeks between results posting from the same board. In general, portal will change before you get notification.
    Good luck!
