I had my application turned in by January's deadlines. How will they notify you if you did/didn't get the scholarship ?
Thanks

You won't get a notification if you didn't, but you will get one if you did. Your portal will have an update on it and you will also receive an email notifying you. You can also check your status on the application part where it says "check status" and it will say "boarded" if your application got boarded by the selection board (meaning your packet got looked at and scored) and it will say "winner" if they awarded you a scholarship. So one way or another, you will be notified if you won a scholarship, but will not receive a direct notification telling you if you did not receive one. An ROO told me the next release date is on or around February 14th so hopefully we both get some good news soon! Good luck!

Don't worry, I was honestly not even expecting anything on this board and was really surprised. Like many people on this thread have said, it all rests in the hands of the board and it really depends on how they look at your packet. A friend of mine who was awarded one last year did not get one til the 3rd board and I believed that they had much better stats than I did personally. The waiting is the worst part but time will tell and there's not much time until the 3rd board even though it may feel like an eternity. Try to enjoy your senior year as much as possible and I truly believe the best will happen. Good luck to you and I think good news is awaiting you right around the bend!
