    DS signed his acceptance letter for a four-year scholarship, it was scanned and emailed as an attachment to the email on the letter. It was also uploaded as a document to his portal on the 24th of November. It is still showing as pending, and we aren't sure what to do. Tried sending a message through the portal, but it would be nice to speak with a human. Should we contact the ROO at his accepting school and go that route? The deadline of Dec 5th is quickly approaching! I know people on this board will know what to do.

    My DS sent it in via email back on Nov 17th. It finally showed up on the portal yesterday. It takes a bit of time for them to process it. He also copied the ROO on the email so that the Battalion would know it was accepted.

    talk to the ROO, just to cover your bases. We just changed over to an upgraded software, so that may be causing some of the delay.

    Where on the portal will this show up? I don't know where I should be looking. I also accepted mine by scanning and emailing it to headquarters.

    Last tab under the application (same tab that says winner).

    Your school of choice will show pending, the other schools say something like "accepted another offer"

    Thanks for all the replies! Checking today DS's portal changed as described above. The school he is not choosing states he is using it at another school. The school he is choosing states "pending". Will that ever change from pending?

    I will also have DS call the ROO at the school to give him a head's up on that end.

    Thanks!

    I uploaded my acceptance on my portal a few weeks ago and was approved a few days following;however, my status has been unknown for the past 2 weeks and I sent an email to the administrators about a week ago and I still haven't received a response. Am I all clear for my acceptance or not?

    Has your DS been through the DODMerb process yet as a result of an academy application? I'm wondering if they will continue to show as "pending" until they are approved from DODMerb, since they are still just conditional offers until that is completed. Our DS accepted the scholarship, but is still working through Remedials from DODMerb. His DODMerb file doesn't even show the AROTC request there yet. It is showing open files there for 3 academies and NROTC. Maybe they don't submit the info to DODmerb until the deadline has passed for accepting the scholarship and then they send one file to request it for all those who have accepted?

    I was wondering the same thing. DS did make it through the DODMerb process for USMA and is qualified. I checked yesterday and USMA is still the only agency listed on his DODMerb account.

    I have been given the green approval for my acceptance of the scholarship as well as my acceptance letter for the school I selected; however, my school choice still says pending acceptance under all three schools. Should I contace Cadet Command or wait and see? Thanks

    Checked my DS's portal tonight. It now only shows the school that he selected and says "Offer Accepted"

    I would check with Cadet Command or the ROO of your intended school.
