    Just checked the "upload files" section of scholarship application site, scholarship letters are there with specifics around scholarship terms (4 year or 3 year AD and what schools they are for)

    Good luck everyone !

    Hmmm. Just checked my DS portal and I didn't see anything. I only see the items DS uploaded when he was going through application process. Is it at the bottom of the list of his other docs? What is the title of the letter?

    Yes, it is listed as "other" at bottom of page under other uploaded documents like "transcript" and "SAT scores" etc.
    Listed as last name: last 4 of ss#:winner letter for example:

    SMITH:1234:Winner Letter

    I guess we'll just have to keep checking. Still not there and it's 2:15pm Eastern. Thanks for the heads up, though.

    Ours was not updated this morning, but is now. I'm sure it takes a while to put them all in:biggrin:


    The letter only shows one of the 3 schools originally listed as winners on the Application portal. Wonder if the mailed letter will have all of them listed?

    That's odd -- my DS's letter includes all 3 schools, and the 2nd page that has to be signed & returned lists all 3 schools with confirmation numbers. Did you print out the uploaded letter? My assumption is that this is the same 2 pg letter coming in the mail. (Has to be signed & returned no later than 2/26/14.)

    Curious - Does the letter show a "selection status" or does anyone have the general text he/she can post?

    Selection Status: Pending Medical Qualification and Administratively Qualified

    (I assume that means they'll request info from DoDMERB since DS is already qualified through them, and they'll make sure he has been accepted to the universities listed.)

    The winner letter that CC uploads is the same one that you will receive in the mail.

    Yes, it didn't take long for them to see that DS was already qualified with DoDMERB for the SA's he applied to. If you go back to the DoDMERB site in a few days, it should say "Qualified AROTC" below "Qualified XYZ SA". :thumb:

    Letter posted at 3:03pm EST. Three-year AD to top three schools. Son just got off phone with ROO at one of the schools and said that if he keeps his grades up & performs well his 1st semester, they may be able to get him the additional 1/2 year. Time to crunch some numbers!

    Weird. Son's uploaded letter is only one page and it states that he must accept the scholarship NLT 2/23/14. I thought we'd at least get thirty days to decide!

    DS says 2/23/14, as well. With regard to the length of the letter, DS was 2-pages. When I double clicked on the letter, it gave me the option to Open or Download (or Open or Save -- something like that). Once it was opened on my screen, I could see that it was 2-pages.

    That is VERY weird. Does the application portal still show multiple schools on the Status tab? If so, I would try and do some sort of print screen. If the snail mail version of the award letter still only shows one school, I would definitely get in touch with CC if it is affecting the final choice of school.
