The information on this forum has been so helpful to DS and me on his application journey/odyssey. Thanks to all who contribute. DS is a second time applicant, so we have endured almost two years of waiting. He received an email from our MOC on Wednesday congratulating him on his impending appointment. But, he is gun shy and doesn't want to "jinx" anything by making public announcements - or even telling friends, grandparents, etc. - until he either has the BFE in hand or the portal updates. This is Sunday and so far, crickets. The delay in BFE could be due to the fact that he attends a large university and the BFE is a package. But when does the portal usually update? I'm a little sad for him because every day he waits takes a little more joy out of his fantastic news and allows doubt to set in. He has called the MOC office to verify there was no mistake. Any insight on when his torture might end would really help. Thank you!
