    Am I wasting my time constantly refreshing my portal page? Will I be sent an email if anything changes? Thanks! :thumb:

    I think most are getting a call from their MOCs before the portal changes. My DS received his call early last week. He said last night his portal was still not updated. Same thing happened a few years ago with my oldest son. MOC call first, portal update later.

    I believe the system sends out an email as soon as the portal is updated. You can reduce the wear and tear on your F5 key by 50% anyway.

    This will give you an opportunity to test your cat-like reflexes each time the phone rings. (as well as testing your ability to maintain your military bearing when you get the same wrong number for the 5th time)

    I know everyone keeps advising patience, which does not help. So, in the interest of jumping on the dogpile... Patience young Jedi...

    Personally, my portal updated before I got a call from my MOC. The way it works is they only update the portal once a day, usually around 3:00am-5:00am. Once every morning should suffice. :smile:

    saw info on portal before call

    DS said he saw the nomination information updated on the portal about 1 day before the MOC called. At his school they are not allowed phone use during the day, so the call was later in the evening.

    You WILL receive an email any time your portal is updated with a new letter or notification. So I guess the better thing to do is to constantly refresh your email! I hope everyone hears good news soon, I know the wait is killer! :thumb:
