    When do applicants that have everything completed along with a nom(s) usually hear back if they were offered an appointment?

    Typically the first few weeks of March. Some applicants have already heard, but the majority of appointments will come out in the next month. If you don't hear from them in March don't consider yourself out of the game until you get a TWE, some people hear as late as June (believe it or not).

    So was there no update to your portal until then or was there a change in status that happened in June? I've read about the last minute appointments, but I wasn't clear whether that meant there was no update on the portal prior to those last minute appointments. Thanks for clarifying.

    No update to my portal until June 7. I had no idea my application was still being considered, I assumed no answer meant I wasn't recieving an appointment.

    I was denied last year in early April, notified of a Falcon Foundation scholarship end of April, went to NWP and this year got an appointment early March (03/02/2016). Hang in there.

    The stress is definitely starting to set in! Scared of passing up other full ride offers else where but the risk is worth it I hope!

    Does anyone know how files are reviewed? Do they take all the noms for each MOC and fill their vacancies MOC by MOC?

    My DS is in the same position with multiple offers. None of the colleges that awarded scholarships penalize in anyway, if he accepts a scholarship and passes for a SA appointment. He has chosen his Plan B college, which is a full academic + $2500 School of Engineering scholarship. I am paying his admission (nonrefundable) and housing fees (refundable) today to secure that he gets the residence hall and roommate that he would want, but I sure hope for his sake that it is money wasted. ;) As much as I would like to wait a few more weeks, the freshman housing is filling up quickly. Good luck!
