My DS portal changed for MARINE OPTION on Friday 3/17/17 to "Your application was not selected for a scholarship". No phone call from the recruiter he has worked with the last 3 yrs, no call from the Recruiting Station Captain who said his interview was the best in 3 years, no email, no snail mail. He was shocked as everyone has been told results possibly the first week in April. Please respond if your portal has changed for MARINE OPTION ONLY for the good or the bad. I have been following this forum since last Fall and have read many posts. So much for the Marines not updating their portal slow or never. Location Washington State. Questions if anyone can answer: 1. When he re-applies in the Fall for the scholarship will he work with our same local Marine office again and will the same board be reviewing? I have seen all of the positive outcomes of many getting it the second time around. Also, will the same board be reviewing? 2. The "Spring" college programer option is confusing. Please explain the process. Is this done again through the local offices? Any information is appreciated.
