    Someone on the forum mentioned in a post that they heard that their application was being reviewed this week. How did they find out about this? Did that call USNA or does USNA send out a letter or email or something telling you this? Thanks for any help regarding this.

    You can call Navy admissions, email your Regional Director, or email your BGO.

    What do you hope to accomplish by asking this question? Think that if every candidate emailed or called Admissions to find their status, how overwhelmed they would get. I am not telling you what to do or not to do it, but consider what I posted above. Admissions is dealing with candidates in this cycle and NASS/STEM applicants -- they have a lot of work going on. They will be happy to answer you, but think if you were in their shoes and got emails/calls from everyone...how much work would you get done?
    BGOs don't have this information and if we did, we certainly are not allowed to give it out.

    I think it is perfectly fine to. There is nothing wrong with curiosity. Not to mention, some people can't stand the wait, and it helps them deal with it.

    Welcome to the Navy! Don't even get me started on the years we waited for BUPERS to tell us where we would be in two weeks. Learn to deal with the wait now, it only gets worse from here.

    I think you might be confusing me for OP. I can deal with the wait, but I realize a lot of people cannot

    Back around Christmas, our RD (region 3) sent out an email about the approaching deadline that included several paragraphs. I will copy and paste one of the paragraphs dealing with this topic:

    4)NOTIFICATIONS: The majority of our notifications (both positive and negative) will be mailed to you in early March. I cannot tell you what the answer is before the official notification is sent so please do not even ask. The notification will be mailed to the address you entered in our system when you started your application. Take a minute to log in to your page and verify that all of the information in the “Candidate Data” box is up to date. You can edit it by clicking the “edit” button.

    From DS's experience, knowing whether your file has been reviewed won't matter and may even make the wait harder on you. DS had his file complete for the 2014 appointment cycle in August 2013. In September he got a call from someone at USNA asking DS a questions about something in his file. The caller said DS's file was going to be boarded (or something like that) the next day. After that, dead silence (except an October medical waiver that got our hopes up) until the TWE in April telling him he was on the waiting list. He didn't make it off that list, reapplied this year, completed his file in late January and received a BFE last week.

    I so badly wanted DS to call USNA, his BGO, anybody, during that wait from September to April last year, but he wisely bided his time. Meanwhile, I scoured this forum and learned a lot! Wow, was he disappointed in April, then again in May when he got the second TWE. We were heartbroken for him.

    Knowing his file was reviewed in September made the wait harder. Sometimes ignorance really is bliss.

    As has been stated on numerous threads in the last few days, even if you are being boarded this week, you might not hear anything for weeks. Don't assume it means you will have an answer immediately. It could be tomorrow or it could be May. Most will hear in the next few weeks. As kayaker mentioned they waited until April. For them to make a decision everyone on the slate has be boarded. Maybe there is someone that is a principle nom or ranked as #1 who needs a medical waiver, or is a college reapplicant, or any other reason to be able to make an evaluation of who the winner is. Maybe you got sent to the NWL. Knowing you are being boarded may or may not ease your anxiety, but remember there is so much more to it than even your application.
