    I received an e-mail from them in response to my e-mail. It was a generic e-mail they sent to people in the application process to let them know that some things did change. I'm not sure what changed either. I learned that my DH did not complete the parent form. It looks like it went into his spam folder and I didn't realize until today that we need to wait until September. Another month of anxious waiting.

    Angelah, sorry you are having to wait one more month! Ugh. I never got an email from them about criteria changes. ...
    Still waiting to hear, I check the mailbox hoping...we shall see...

    Thanks. I am guessing that they sent it out to people who did not get their applications in yet, which is how I learned that my DH did not complete his form. I am curious how many applications they typically receive and if it really is the last day of the month until we find out. Did the rest of you get a final confirmation that all of the material was received? I know they received my form and the nominators prior to August 1st, but that was the only message I received. Thanks for helping me understand the process.

    The criteria changes don't take effect until October 1st. We should be fine for this month and next with the old rules. The achievement test my son took won't be accepted after the deadline. Glad we got the application in. Ready for another waiting period!

    No word yet via mail or email. I'm guessing I won't hear till the end of the month. No one asked for more info either, so I'm hopeful things will go ok.
    I'm so curious the waiting is hard
