    smile I'm finding completing the application and feeling confident about how much to write is hard!! I'm second guessing what to say, if my examples are good enough...ugh. I'm sure waiting will be tough too, but right now I need a kick in the pants to get it done and send it already!! wink

    congrats to everyone who got in and good luck to those pending!!!

    Waiting was tough...!

    I think there is a lot of waiting in this process. Waiting for IQ scores, waiting for achievement test scores....it's hard on a parent!

    Good luck to your DC Speechie.

    Thanks all, and yes, slammie, I submitted scanned, signed reports. Our application wasn't considered complete until after May 1st as the nominator hadn't finished her bit but we were still considered in May.

    Slammie, did you get an email about your app being complete? I got ours in by the 1st but then today we got an email saying that the application is considered complete and reviews will happen on the first of the month. Does that mean NEXT month?

    KTPie, same boat here. Not sure what to think because I am 100 percent certain everything was in a few days before the deadline . I don't remember this happening with DS's app last year. Maybe they have a cap of the maximum number of candidates they will consider per month thus deferring us to the following month?

    KTPie,

    The same thing happened to us with our DD's application. It all worked out in the end. I think if you have qualifying scores in achievement and IQ you shouldn't worry because it will all work out, just a month later than expected.

    KTPie, sorry for the delay in responding; did you find out whether you made it in this month's group? I didn't get an application complete email for several days after the initial submission.
    Minx - thanks for your response. I did resend the email asking if they needed it and I just got a response that our application was received and to expect an answer by the end of the month.
    Hoping all of you get good news in the next few days!

    Slammie,
    I actually emailed them to see, out of curiosity. They said that they have been crazy busy with summer and those emails were sent out later than they normally send them and that my son is still in this month's pool. Hoping to hear soon smile
