AROTC portal mistake?

My son, a Plebe at West Point, got an email yesterday saying he had a message on the ROTC portal he had from applying (and receiving) a scholarship last year. He passed on the rotc scholarship because he accepted the appointment to USMA. But when he logged into the portal (we had to dig up his login info), it said the board is considering his application, or something to that effect. Of course, he did not make application this year. He did last year and was awarded a 4 year scholarship to two schools. But that's old history. What gives???
Who knows? Clearly there is some error on their part. Don't worry about it (and I know you weren't). Software is a finicky thing (he said after working 38 years 1 month and 1 day in the industry).
