Today I received my email that my application is going up for review. Now the nervous waiting begins.

Good luck to you! I wish you the very best of luck and hope you get accepted to your #1 choice, but I also see from your profile that you are apply to most, if not all SAs! Keep us posted!
 
Also received email, CGA also first choice. I was wondering, I thought it interesting that the email said that notifications will be made on a rolling basis. From what I'd heard, everyone heard at the same time, does anybody know anything about this?
 
They usually offer appointments in "waves," and you all must be the first batch they are reviewing. EA doesn't close until October 15, so there will be at least one more wave.

Approximately half of the appointments offered for 2022 will be to EA applicants. Believe it or not, they will also offer spots on the waitlist to EA applicants, but they might not come out until December. Then the process begins all over for the RA applicants.

Just because you received the email doesn't mean you'll hear anything soon. Stay busy! What is meant to be, will be. Hoping you all get good news!

My DD received the same email. She submitted her application for EA review at the beginning of last week. She contacted her admissions liaison and was told that only 150 or so EA applications were submitted to date and they would probably wait till significantly more were received. I guess it was a busy week last week! Good luck to all the applicants as I am sure they are all deserving in their own right!!

My DD applied EA, had received an LOA, and qualified under DoDMERB. Will they review LOA first or all together?

If anything like last year there were 4 rounds of announcements in EA. Late October/ early November, later November, early December and then right before xmas. There didn't seem to be rhyme or reason to when who heard. My DS came in before his DoDmerb did. Hang in there!

you will be reviewed based on when your app was received - even with LOA - you dont go to front of the line - you fall in where received

I asked this in the dodmerb page but didn’t really get a direct answer. My DS has everything in for EA. He got his email that it’s being reviewed BUT he had to take 1 more test for a remedial. Will waiting on dodmerb qualification make him lose a chance at a possible admission at CGA?

Anyone know when the first round of EA notifications comes out? Early November?
We should be seeing some offers being given by early November but others even if already reviewed may not hear anything until one of the later review/appointment boards meets. My DS two years back did not get a decision until late December but was reviewed in October of that year.
So for any individual applicant it could be sometime between now and December 24th. They tend to be rolling groups of appointments as Tmamon states above.

Even though I received the email on Oct 10th. saying my application is going up for review, the box remains unchecked.
 
Does anyone know when the last box (review complete) gets checked off? In other words, how does my DS learn of an offer? Snail mail only? Snail mail and an email? Should he definitely not expect any word until after that last check mark on the Den account? Or are they slow in making that last check mark until after the offer has been sent to the candidate?

When the decision is up there will be a new box that will be checked I forget exactly what it said but it will say decision made. You will log in to Bears den to see it. You will get an email too but that came a full day after the decision was posted. Snail mail will not happen until the official appointment packages go out. For example DS was notified of his appointment on 11/21 and did not receive the package until 12/23.

Best of luck to all who are waiting. I remember this time two years ago with son. He applied EA and received acceptance in early Nov. He ultimately chose West Point but loved Coast Guard as well. It was a tough decision for him.
 
Thanks for the well-wishes! It's nerve racking. We keep checking the mail looking for some kind of large envelope. But what I gather my DS should be checking his Bear Den account instead.

Am I understanding that correctly....that my DS should see his actual decision FIRST on his Bear Den home page? Then he will get an email of the decision? I gather we should stop looking to the snail mail and concentrate on the webpage and email, correct?
