    DS was wlns from last year and has decided to re-apply this year. He did so and now his online status say "you have been selected to change your status to Candidate......look for more information to follow" or something like that. Anyone else see that on theirs? thanks!

    jagabiti,

    Congratulations. I'm sure that you and your DS are excited about progress this early in this year's process. Encourage him to max out EVERYTHING for his reapplication.

    Just got my status changed yesterday. In red letters under my status, which reads "applicant" are the words: "Attention! You have been identified for promotion to Candidate status. Your "Candidate Kit" will be available to access (on this page) soon (early August at the latest)."

    Anyone know if that's a good thing or just because all our DS/DD applied last year?

    Do you know if this is different for falcon applicant's? It says, when I look at my status page, that they will set up my profile in early September.. I guess I'll just wait until then, but if anyone can confirm that, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

    Pretty sure it's a good thing. They wouldn't make you a competitive candidate simply because you were an applicant from the previous year.

    The Falcon applicant's forms come up later. Your prep school will make sure you are on track with the application. You should finish up your paperwork for your nominations as soon as you can, so you can focus on your prep curriculum.

    Well my DS's status had changed just like that a few weeks ago. Today it has changed back to under review. Any idea what that means?:confused:

    Same here...I think they are just rewording things a bit. Until they get the packet of additional things they need to submit, it shouldn't significantly change....

    Same here. When I checked this morning, the red wording that appeared below the status as Candidate or whatever disappeared. I don't think it means anything, really. They wouldn't say that you no longer are a candidate, after they said that you were. I don't think it's really something to worry about. I hope not, anyway!

    Called DS's counselor and she told me that forms are to go out this week. She also said that further letters of reference are not needed, but the candidate needs to call the academy counselor to have those letters carried forward from the previous year. She mentioned that they are still getting used to the new system and to feel free to call if there are any questions or if things son't look right.
