    One of my cadets who received a 3yr AD scholarship logged in to his account to show one of our juniors his application. When he went to the STATUS page, he noticed it no longer said 3YR AAD, but now said 4 Year. Has anyone else seen this? He has not gotten any additional paperwork or emails. I told him he should call the ROO at the school and verify his actual status.

    Sounds like he's a 4 year winner now.

    He was originally awarded on the 2nd board. He does not know when his status changed to 4 year. He has not been on since he verified his acceptance letter had been approved.

    Yes it happens as it happened to my DS. Surprised the ROO didn't call as DS's ROO called first thing in the AM to give him the good news. Agree a call to the ROO is a good idea. Congrats.

    My guess is they hold back some four year second board just in case they need them for new applicants third board, or their might be kids that did not accept an earlier four year due to other opportunities. Then after the third board did a re-shuffling and went back to those kids that were maybe on the bubble between a three and four year. What an awesome surprise!

    That was my guess as well. I know it happened to another one of my cadets 2 years ago, but I did not hear of it happening last year. I know each year is different.

    He just got a call. He was told he needs to be ready for an APFT so he can contract.

    That's great news, they were right, tell him to work his rear end off and be ready for the APFT. When he passes and has his 104R completed along with all the other paperwork, he will contract and begin receiving his stipend, book money and his tuition will be paid.

    I sent in a request letter when I saw I was a 3 yr winner and they upgraded me later that week. I don't know if the letter did it or they just did it. Either way I'm pumped.
