    Hello, DS portal status has changed to "hold". Thanks to this forum we understand our DS is now in the running for our state slot (x2) and we hope to know sometime in April if a trip to NY is in order...good luck to all! (Wife's cousin is a KP'r and completed his career in the USN after tooling tug boats around somewhere on the east coast.)

    My sons status changed to 'hold' today as well and he is from NJ. I would like to thank the forum as well, at some other schools 'hold' status can be a death sentence and I thought it was today, until reading this forum. We were scheduled for a reception for nominees from our congressman this evening. Even tho I realized with the vote/non-vote on capitol hill today they might have to cancel, when they did and then the hold status, it felt like a one two punch to the stomach. I am now (very happily) back to hoping we hear something before I have a coronary.

    I'm from NJ-02 and I was put on hold in December. I had been patiently waiting until the beginning of March when my MOC gave me the good news. As long as he did his true best, he should be proud of himself. I'm hoping and praying to see your DS in the summer and if not, I hope he continues to be a success. Best of luck!
