    So I just found out I received a 4yr. Nrotc scholarship via email but my portal has not yet updated. How long does that usually take? Im a bit anxious because I was not informed where I was placed. 1st choice is Ohio State

    It took roughly 3 weeks from an initial phone call for my son's portal to update. He was notified on 19 December he received a Marine Option scholarship, and his portal updated on 9 January. Of course, that was over the holiday time period. Results may vary.

    Congratulations! My son's in the same boat - received the email this afternoon, but portal not updated. He called the FL number - voicemail. Shot an email off...but the weekend may have begun. His 1st choice is SUNY Maritime.

    The same thing happened to my son this afternoon. Received an e-mail congratulating him on a 4yr NROTC scholarship, along with four pdf attachments, but nowhere does it mention which of the five schools he received the scholarship(s) to... His first choice is Ohio State as well. The portal still states "No decision has been made".... Can it really take a couple weeks until the portal updates with the schools for which he received the scholorship(s)?

    rocatlin, I have gone through all the attachments to the email, and it keeps referencing the following "You must attend the college or university listed in your selection letter." Did you receive a "selection letter" to let you know which school(s) you received scholarships to? There is no such letter attached to the email. Thanks for any information you can provide!

    Congratulations on your scholarships! When my son got his 4 year NROTC scholarship feb 20th, he just clicked on the email , logged in and the school assignment was on there immediately..there was no waiting. Sounds like a computer glitch somewhere. Hope you all find out soon

    NAVYHOPEFUL2019, you are lucky!! It is so strange that many received e-mails congratulating them on their scholarships, but they do not tell them which schools they received scholarships to... I was talking to a friend earlier who said the portal usually updates at midnight (or some time over the night), so we will check first thing in the morning! Thanks for you reply!!

    Sounds like portal updated but selection letters haven't been uploaded yet possibly?

    My son got the email after he looked at the portal. The portal actually gave his school info.

    I just received the email saying I got the scholarship also and my portal still reads "no decision has been made." It'll definitely update sometime during the upcoming days, if not tomorrow.

    I was called Friday and informed I had received an MO scholarship but I haven't received any emails and my portal hasn't updated. Should I be concerned at all?

    For me, there were actually two portals. The netfocus portal which you submitted the application and another one which came in an email when they received your application. The second one was updated first for me when I checked and the netfocus portal wasn't updated until about a week later.

    My son is still waiting to hear back on his NROTC scholarship application, checking the portal every day! Still says, "no decision has been made…" We are hopeful and ANXIOUS. He has a wonderful resume overall , but ACT was only a 25 at the time he submitted his app. (Raised it to a 27 in Feb, but we doubt that it made it to his file in time for the selection board)
    We are all so curious about this process, though… notifications by email, portal, phone calls, etc. Recruiters know, but they don't. You should call, or no you should NOT call… it's all quite confusing to be honest. Can anyone give us a date by which we should know something?
