OK. another related thread on the october board results. I understand the letter will go out by Friday or Monday. However, that snail mail will take several days. Will the on line status now be updated to show the schools he got the scholarship? In this case, this is as good as the letter as a "final confirmation" for where he got the scholarship. Wouldn't it be? Last year, when did the on line status change to include the list of schools the candidate got the scholarship for? My son is dying to get the official, final words. It's not just idle curiosity. It's a matter of urgency that he needs to find out so that he can convert the submitted regular decision application to #2 to early decision application. The early decision (ED) deadline was Nov 15th, but we believe, with the advocacy of the ROTC officers, the school will let him convert the application to ED if it is within a few days past the deadline, but we hate to push the limit. If he applied ED, he gets the result by Dec 10 or so, and it's wonderfully within the 30 days period to notify the Cadet Command his final choice. I really hope he can wrap this all up before the holidays.
