I was personally quite disappointed because there were NO CALLS/EMAILS to inform me that my application had been pushed to the next cycle although I called up one week after the deadline of submission - They said they'd call back but I heard no news. Nothing at all. A week later I called again and that was the reply I received. (as above) FYI, I am an NSF (enlisted in Jan), not in BMT and therefore am able to access my HP 24/7. And yes, we are able to get Off-passes to attend interviews.

I'm not sure whether this is standard procedure for other scholarship providers. What I found appalling was how my application was trashed aside even though I had called them to enquire about my status (and they promised to call back). It would also have been better if they had informed us that our application had been pushed to the next cycle so we wouldn't get so nervous waiting for calls that would never come.
What is the difference by pushing NSF application to next cycle and processing it now?

If the application is pushed to the next cycle, the NSF will still be serving NS. What difference is it gonna made?
