Thanks, and a little more explanation :)
July 5, 2010
First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who left positive messages with regard to my last post. I am going to be honest and say that I posted that when I probably shouldn’t have! I was already having a terrible day and seeing that update/finding some negative results of my Google searches realllllly bummed me out … I probably wasn’t in the best mindset to be putting up a new blog 🙂
That being said, I want to put a little more about what my update says to see if anyone has any feedback on it … maybe give me a heads up as to what they think it means?
Like I said in my last post, at the top of the screen it says that a decision has been reached regarding my application and that a letter is in the mail. I know this can mean a whole bunch of things depending on the application … it’s what is next to my medical check that is confusing me and making me feel like it isn’t something good …
For most people, when medical is finished they get a check mark with the word “Complete” and a phrase that says a decision has been made with regard to medical and a letter has been sent. Mine has the same phrase at the end, but it is missing the check mark and the word “Complete” which basically tells me I’m not medically cleared … right? That’s all I can assume – that I fall into the category of rejected, deferred, or needing more information.
Does anyone know what they put on that line if they need more info, like more signatures or paperwork or something? I was under the impression that it would say something like “In Review”. I feel as though the fact that it says a decision has been reached means they don’t need anything more from me to tell me what they think about it … which is why I believe it’s either a deferral or a rejection. Does that make sense?
Either way, or even if it’s something completely different, I won’t know until the letter gets here, so I’ve calmed down a bit 🙂 or a lot!
I’m just worried. I feel like my issues are similar to those of many people and in both circumstances, they aren’t drastic or really even anything more than minor … so the fact that I don’t have a check mark, yet they have made a decision is confusing and worrisome.
But, I’m going to wait it out … A few more days and I’ll have the letter and know exactly what is going on. I just have to be patient until then 🙂
Thanks again for all the positive comments, and the few of you who were honest enough to give me a swift kick in the pants for being so worried and negative … I appreciate it!
