    Just curious, are portals only updated once a day? We are in the Eastern time zone and I noticed a few other EST candidate portals have already updated (congrats, by the way)! Is it fair to say that we will not hear anything until after Spring Break? Or will portals be updated throughout the day today and tomorrow morning?

    @USAFA2019HopefulMom, I don't know for sure, but I do remember someone who was accepted for EA saying that theirs was not updated till 3pm on January 15th.

    Yup, we had pre-dawn info this morning CDT, too. Can't complain about good news whenever it comes!

    (Though, we are an active duty military family who claim our home of record as TX and that is where DS received his nomination, but we are currently in VA....confusing much????? HAHA!)

    I'm in Rhode Island with nominations from my Florida congressmen (home of residency.) I know that feel.

    I dunno if we'll even hear today. Maybe tomorrow.

    Thanks everyone! I assumed it got updated overnight... but that little voice said 'maybe' it would happen throughout the day. :( I'm so glad the kid isn't following this forum, their just keeping the faith without any of the 'insight' on 'estimated' time of news; easier to enjoy the Senior year without that "tic toc" noise each week! They know that the final alarm may not sound until next month!
    Mom, on the other hand, continues to pray for virtuous patience! :angel::bang:

    It appears that this wave of appointments were all congressional charge appointments. For those still waiting, a large number of appointments still to come from National pool. Wishing everyone the best of luck and Godspeed.

    Also, looking into those crystal balls... o_O do you think it is safe to say that there will be no updates tomorrow since that starts spring break? Or will decisions be put in today as well and post tomorrow?

    A cadet told me that he didn't think Admissions takes a rest during spring break. So, I can't say for sure!

    Pretty sure they are done for now. The appointments were made on the 12th and given to the nomination sources.

    I guess that is why I'm hoping maybe more will come today/tomorrow... since the appointments showing up on the portal this morning were from the 12th (last Thursday)....I'm assuming they continued to make decisions after the 12th. Just that little voice of hope that we might not have to wait another 2-4 weeks. :(

    Hang in there! There is still PLENTY of time for you to hear! Regardless of what happens, know you have an AMAZING DS/DD (I'm sorry I don't know which) and for them to have made it this far is already such an honor!

    Does anyone know how/when they notify candidates of rejection or prep school?

    I was told by my Admissions counselor in person, that a lot of appointments should come out tomorrow. She could have mistaken tomorrow for today, but just so everyone knows! And there are still appointments to be made, so keep the faith! I'm still in the waiting game as well!
