It's really scary to see on my toolkit that my application has been withdrawn, but I knew it was coming. Our recruiter e-mailed us yesterday to say that he was going to withdraw it because it might look bad for our applications to sit idle for so long since they can't be submitted until May 5 with placements to come in middle to late May. He will reactivate our applications just before he can submit them to DC for couples' placement. This doesn't make a lot of sense to me since there is nothing we could be doing to keep our applications from sitting idle (if it were up to us, we'd take a placement today!) and since it seems better for us to have applied early, but I think our recruiter knows what he's doing and is trying to help us out.
Paul still hasn't received his toolkit login information in the mail and is still waiting for two letters of recommendation that are supposed to be done over spring break, which is next week. So, those two things are really all there is for us (him) to do between now and May 5.
