    Those who are awarded scholarships are usually notified a couple weeks after the board meets. Last year, my DS was notified on his portal, then received something in the mail about 5 days later. Those who are not awarded a scholarship do not hear anything and their application rolls over to be reviewed again the next board.

    23-27 OCT, tentatively. Results typically post about two weeks after the conclusion, sometimes sooner.

    What would be the reason for this? Not enough applicants yet?

    I haven't the faintest idea. It might be not enough officers were available to staff the board. The Navy is a little busy right now with hurricanes, N Korea, ship collisions, etc. However, your guess is as good as mine. It could very well be not enough applicants yet. The Navy is somewhat secretive about their boards and it's not uncommon for the first board to be cancelled. It's happened before.

    I think it's Dec 11-15....my DD's NROTC coordinator sent us an email. So take it with a grain of salt, as I am only repeating, I do not have first hand knowledge.

    I'm interested in whether it is the norm for the coordinators to notify candidates that the Board will be reviewing an application? How do they know this information? Is it firsthand or are they assuming that since the candidates application paperwork has been received, they will be boarded?
    DS has had zero information sent via coordinator and has even left two messages. FYI, application was complete at the end of August.

    The coordinators are likely assuming, based upon the amount of time it generally takes from when a package is submitted to when it's boarded. There are a few steps that happen in between.

    In general the only communication back to a candidate is when they have been awarded a scholarship.... or when (in late March or April) they are notified that they will not receive a scholarship. As usual I suppose there might be an exception that usually happens outside the guidelines.

    Maybe hurricanes? Gives time for more of the affected areas to complete their (interrupted) application process. I work for a university and we also extended app deadlines and such for this. It really affected a huge area of the country.
