    So my selection status changed to boarded. But when I logged on my schools of intent have all been changed. I messaged cadet command as soon as I saw these changes. There are schools I haven't even heard of on this list, and no school is in state for me, so I'm not sure what to do. None of the schools I selected were on this list and I am not sure how to change the list.

    If you have messaged CC then all you can do is wait for a day. If no response tomorrow I would call them.

    I just have no idea how my schools of intent have changed. Has anyone else seen this problem?

    I agree with sherrif3. Follow up with a phone call tomorrow and call each day until it's resolved. Don't panic. it will be straightened out if it isn't just a glitch.

    One thing you might try in the interim is to logout, close you browser or restart your system and then log back in again. If there is some bad data saved in your session that is causing an issue, this should clear it up.

    Okay, that is what I will do. I just hope it doesn't hurt my scholarship chances.

    One of my cadets just checked her application and her schools have changed as well. The tab is also now yellow. I am guessing it has something to do with them changing statuses from board ready to boarded. Her schools are now VA Tech, Christopher Newport and Montana State. None are instate. I am sure things will be straightened out in the next day or so.

    I saw this thread and just checked my application portal. Same thing happened to me, all the schools were changed and none were in-state schools. The tab was yellow with the warning that I had not selected an in-state school. My application was showing Board Ready so I was able to change all the schools back to my original choices.

    My son checked his too. He was boarded first round so I don't think it has anything to do with going from Board Ready to Boarded. His portal lists the same three that you list. Out of the 7 schools only one school on his list is correct. The tab is now yellow and states that he must pick a school from his home state. Which he did in the original list.

    My son was boarded on the first round and his schools are messed up too. I'm sure they'll get it fixed soon.

    A US Military computer network put together by the lowest bidder, What could go wrong.

    I agree with the others that you should wait a day or two to see if the issue self corrects. If you do not see any change by then and have not received a reply from CC, you could always contact the ROO at your No. 1 School and see if they have any idea what has happened. I would wait those two days before contacting the ROO, they are probably flooded with calls about this right now.

    Could also be a very ingenious way of recruiting for the school listed, just kidding, I'm sure it's simply a system glitch.

    My son's was changed was well. Showing the same three schools as above and turning his tab to incomplete. I was able to go in and change them back to the correct schools of intent. He was showing as board ready even with the incomplete tab and changing the schools back did not change the status, it still shows board ready. Will make sure to go in a check it each day now.

    We were already Boarded before going into the January board and our application is the same as yours- Yellow incomplete schools and the same 3 you listed. It has to be a system error because we check our status everyday in hopes it changes from Boarded to Winner and yesterday's check did not look like this.

    I have no doubt this is a software error on their server. Looks like instead of querying the schools for the current user, it's querying the schools for some same user all the time. Send those emails and make sure they know about it. Who knows? They may discover it on their own, but I wouldn't count on it.

    I emailed Cadet Command this past week to change my school choices. These new schools are definitely not what I had in mind. Hahaha!

    I just logged out and logged back in about 10 minutes ago. I deleted the random schools on the list and was able to re select my actual schools of intent. I hope that solved the issue!

    Sorry y'all, but I started another thread with the same issue. I'm having the same problem.
