    Are the October boards scholarship selections out yet? If not should we expect in the next few days? Will it say once i the check scholarship status if i was awarded one? I know you are not informed about not recieving a scholarship.

    I don't think October board results are out yet since this forum hasn't lit up. When they are out you'll see people posting that they received a scholarship. It should show up in your status that you received a scholarship but probably will not list the school(s). In any case its not official until you receive a letter. If you hear nothing then you've been reboarded. It's possible you might be waiting until April to find you did not get a scholarship, as we did two years ago. Be sure to have plan B ready to go.

    I'm debating on putting plan B into action if i get reboarded of joining a national guard unit. Doesn't your enlistment contract become null and void if given an ROTC scholarship?

    Tomorrow may be the day

    If this year's first board matches the schedule from 2011, tomorrow will be the start of status changes on the application website. Best of luck to all the 2013 applicants.

    If they followed the same schedule as last year today would have been the day that notifications began. I guess it's safe to assume no one has heard anything?

    No News

    No status updates here either. The waiting is nerve wracking!

    Take a walk. Take many long walks. You could be waiting until April before you get an answer. Deep Breaths. I hope you hear earlier but April is always a possibility. You need to settle in for the long haul.

    Congratulations to your DS. He's obviously quite a guy!
    :jump1:

    To others: It appears the first board results are coming out. It normally takes a few days for all the results to be posted, so don't despair yet! Also, there are other boards to come so do not give up hope if you weren't awarded a scholarship from the first board.

    Thank you kinnem! I have appreciated all of your posts since I have started reading these forums. It is really great to have a place to go where people understand what applicants and their families go through during the process and are willing to share their knowledge.

    Don't get too excited yet, that scholarship award was for NROTC.

    Hang in there everyone, I bet you'll see some status changes by next week.

    Well, wasn't everyone waiting on the first NROTC board? Is there some other board that's meeting this month? :biggrin:

    In my excitement to share my news, did I post on the wrong thread? I thought it was for any ROTC review board.

    You're fine. All ROTCs are equal here. I think jcleppe was just jumping in with the "warning" because ZAROTC is waiting to hear from the AROTC October board.

    Oh okay, I didn't realize. I wish good luck to everyone on the journey! My DS is still waiting to hear from USNA, so the waiting is not over for us either.
