My DD was in that boat last year, but went about making her application even stronger over the past year and got appointed this year. Perseverance was rewarded. Good luck and Happy New Year!We are in the same boat. She is devastated but insists she will self prep and apply again next year. I would prefer her not. Congratulations to those who received good news! Merry Christmas to all.Got the news at 1:30 this morning. Rejected outright. Can't believe they waited so long when the LOA said application was up for review a month ago. Seems they could have let us know a while ago, as Plan B was put on hold because DS was eternally hopeful. Best of luck to everyone and I hope the other last-minute notifications hold better news for everyone else.
