Thanks. I will do first in the morning.
I want to do million times already ....
I started this thread having the same thing happen to me. It took 3 days for it to change and for me to get the news that I had been accepted. Contacting your admissions officer never hurts. Wishing you best of luck and hopefully see you this upcoming summer!
AustinLV, Congratulations for your appointment.
I hope my long waiting game is over soon.
DS received an e-mail on Feb 8th to send in 7th semester grades b/c his application was being reviewed. His status prior to that said application on file...now it's just blank. his grades were submitted on 12 Feb and is updated on the portal; however, status is still blank.
@Coolman1 did you contact admissions?
Hang in there. Checking portal 3 times per day is allowed. Well, maybe 6. Anything over 20 is definitely overdoing it. If I added up the number of times I checked the portal for my three kids who applied, I confess it would be in the hundreds. It's like waiting for an elevator when you are in a hurry. The more times you press the button the faster it will come.
DS has had nothing but problems with his portal. For the longest time it showed nothing had been received, but admissions would tell him they did have what we thought they should have. A few weeks ago admissions said they would send the issue to their IT department. After that, the portal reflected almost everything. It still is missing his DoDMERB status, which he has been qualified since late last year, and his nomination. He received his first nomination in December and the second in January. It is also missing his CFA which in all honesty was just submitted early last week, and his 7th semester grades which were mailed on Friday. Anyone else having these same issues with the portal? He’s a recruited athlete, so I don’t know if that makes a difference. The status is listed as Inquiry. He does have a LOA.
The only issue we had was it going blank after he accepted online after already accepting by mail. That lasted a few days but then it was fixed.
DS Application Status went from HOLD to Blank on Monday and still has not updated feels like two weeks.
Don't feel as though you are in the boat alone! DS was HOLD as of last Thursday, portal went blank last Friday.... and crickets!!! If we check it once... We check it 100 times!!!
Agreed. In between waiting for my medical status and getting my information updated. Never have I ever chomped at the bit so heavily for something to fall through.
DS received his appointment today!!! His portal still has a status of inquiry and doesn’t show his CFA, DoDMERB, or 7th semester grades status. He will call admissions next week. Is the portal used for anything else after accepting the appointment?
DS DODMERB status still showed “Scheduled” even though he completed and qualified back in October. He contacted admissions and ended up having to upload his SS card. Now that is fixed. Mailed his 7th semester transcripts last week. Got his Nom in December. Waiting for appointment news now.
jbs: Congratulations and welcome to the Kings Point family!
Congratulations to your son! I do not believe that the portal is used for anything else but will eventually reflect his accepted appointment status, if I recall correctly--assuming he is going to accept his appointment. Don't forget to go over to the 2022 Appointment thread and post his appointment and all the other details.
jbs123 Congratulations to your son on his Appointment !!!
