    Okay, so I have my SAT scores in, Transcripts, and Personal Essay done. I called the head of Army ROTC in my area and scheduled an interview, i'm getting my interview Tuesday evening, which is the 5th. I don't have my PFA done or the Guidance Counselor comments, those don't need to be done before the 5th though right? Just everything else including the interview, if I'm not mistaken? Then the guidance counselor comments and PFA needs to be done before the board dates, which for the 2nd board are Jan 25-29. Hopefully i'm not mistaken here.

    This is what was on my DD's dashboard, and they definitely say last day to submit your documents is the 5th. Pretty sure it is everything. You might want to check with your guidance counselor tomorrow and let them know the urgency and get your PFA done prior to your interview. My DD was told by the school she was interviewing at that the PMS required that the PFA be done before the interview, and you won't go "board ready" until the PFA is submitted. Once you get it, I would submit it by scanning it in and uploading it right away, by the 5th. Good luck, if you really buckle down, you can do it by Tuesday, just have a PE teacher or coach do the PFA.

    Directly from CC on the dashboard:
    The 2nd (second) scholarship selection board is scheduled for 25 - 29 January 2016. The last day to submit your documents to complete your application for this board is 5 January 2016. This includes completing your interview with a Professor of Military Science. If you feel you have completed your application, to include your interview, and your status tab does not reflect "Board Ready", please contact us at usarmy.knox.usacc.mbx.train2lead@mail.mil

    Does anyone know the deadline time for the 599th? After scrambling to get everything in order due to delays and some problems, I still have to finish my essay.

    4 things need to be submitted...transcripts, SAT/ACT test grades, PFT, and interview. Looks like you'll be third board.

    I have done all of these things, but I actually did my interview on the 11th... My interviewer said that they are giving them until the 15th to submit them. Was that right? My dash board says board ready. I assume that means second board? Also, under board ready it says you will be evaluated at the next board?

    I am sure the PMS that you interviewed with knew the current information for the board. I would go with what the LTC told you. I believe that when the board meets, the portals will change to "boarded" and you should know for sure. You can always email cadet command for further status of your file.

    Just so you can see...

    "Board Ready: Your application is currently Board Ready. You have submitted all the required documents to include your fitness assessment, You have completed your PMS interview and it has been posted. Your application will be reviewed by a board of PMS's at the next selection board."
