Dear All, I'm curious. From your experience, how long does the following stay on the site until an applicant is ready to be assessed? I'm assuming that this means that candidate's file isn't even ready to be looked at yet. DS finished his application in August. He's really cool about it, is enjoying his senior year, and is working on plans B and C. This parent, though, could do a better job of learning patience (maybe learn it from my own son?) Application has been submitted online Your electronic application has been received and is being processed ... Your application is at Naval Education and Training Command for final processing and selection determination. Selection decisions will begin in late August and continue until the end of April. Once a selection decision has been made, your new status will be reflected.
