Check back here often as updates will be added, as applicable.
Do NOT rely on getting an email notification. Sometimes you get a notice to check the portal, sometimes you don’t — and usually it is noted on the website before any emails get sent. If accepted, expect your printed packet to arrive two-three weeks after notification.
Good luck to all!
