    My status is still boarded for the second board, I was almost certain I should have won at least a three year scholarship to one of my schools. Were all of the winners of the second board notified or was it just some?

    DD still Boarded as well. I think it means not selected but I'm not sure.

    If you got a 3 or 4 year scholarship can you indicate that and then post your stats, such as your PFA, GPA and SAT/ACT?

    God this is really killing me mentally, I feel like I've lost. I'm praying to God, these aren't all the results for the board.

    My DS is in the same boat. I told him he may not have gotten it again, based on these boards and people hearing already (he is still "Boarded"), and he is hopeful by the 26th to hear a positive response. He then told me to not worry so much about what I read online. Perhaps I should listen to him?

    Things can always change, however for at least the last 3 or 4 years, all of the scholarship winners have been loaded on the same day into the scholarship portals and they did not trickle out or get loaded in different phases.

    I figured as much. Thanks for the info. We are continually telling him to make his plan B and stick to that now, things could change in the Spring.

    I contacted my ROO, and he said they shouldn't be done populating the list until Friday. Don't give up hope just yet.

    Make sure you log all the way out and then log back in each time you check your status.

    Last year, some folks had trouble with the "refresh" of their portal screen. After they logged out and logged back in, their status had been updated

    That makes sense. They must be storing some info in the session and logging out would clear that up.

    To those still waiting, always be working on plan B, preferably instead of worrying. There are many ways to a commission. DS did not hear a negative reply from NROTC until mid-April. Because he bad a good plan B in place he was able to attend 1st choice college and join NROTC as a college programmer and won a scholarship that went into effect the spring of his sophomore year. He is now a USMC 2nd Lt. Keep working plan B. You can still accomplish what you want without the scholarship.
