    I'm just curious how notifications have been happening? Has the call come first, then a portal update? Visa versa?
    Are they happening the same day?

    Thanks for the info and good luck to everyone, as we are still waiting in OH.​

    Depends on who nominated you. My Senator called me on a Thursday and my portal updated the next day (Friday). I would be expecting a call more than expecting your portal to change first. But again, it depends who nominated you.

    DS received a call from our congressman (OH) at his school on a Monday (about this time last year) and his portal was updated within a day or two.

    If someone hasn't already mentioned it, you may want to change your user name ;)

    Our DS received call from our representative and Senator Portman (Ohio) about this time 2 years ago. Same as Keep Calm, portal updated a couple days after the call.

    I agree it depends on the MOC. Ours told us they(MOC) are notified first by the SA, and then the SA notifies the candidate, but sometimes the MOC will call. I guess it depends on the office and how busy they are at the time...

    It appears the MOC is notified and given the opportunity to inform the Appointee before the portal is updated.

    My DD has an appointment to both USAFA and USNA and neither MOC made a call to her and she found out via an email to check her portal

    Thanks for the info, but I'm not sure how to change it or delete and create a new one. Any insights?

    You must contact one of the moderators and they will help you change your username.

    What time did the email come? Was it just a random time in the day or do they send a few out at a scheduled time?

    Early in the morning, I think it was 5AM. It was 4 February. Here it is:

    My DS received the same email early on Friday morning 2 weeks ago. He woke me up at 6AM to share the good news. His portal had already been updated that morning as well. His MOC contacted him via US mail about 1 week later.
