    That's an interesting question. My son got one from the 1st board and spoke to VF about it and they offered him one of their ECP slots (kinda like a battalion scholarship) so to allow him to stay in the running for a 3-4 year offer, he just had to reject the Ike Skelton (National offer) for the time being. He still shows "Boarded/Under consideration" for now.

    My son just received his notification that he did receive and Ike Skelton - it’s what he really wanted so we are very happy.

    It said his status will only change to Winner if he accepts it.

    What a crazy week!

    Where is he thinking about going? Marion, New Mexico, Georgia or Valley Forge?

    He is leaning towards Marion. He really likes it, his sister is at UA - and he thinks he’d like to transfer to UA or MS, both are close enough to make that transition easy.

    He’ll be a young freshman so this feels like a good plan for him.
