Profile still says Candidate. Guess I'll cross my fingers for tomorrow.

Mine still says candidate as well, so there's still hope that you'll be in this round.

The official email arrived in my inbox 15 minutes ago.

At this point if you haven't seen or heard anything, your app probably wasn't on this month's docket. If you thought everything was in, you might want to ask Danelle to check your application's status and/or confirm that your references actually sent their letters.

Indeed I was missing one letter of recommendation. I'll get 'em next time.

Are the references taken pretty seriously? Or are they mostly just formalities?

Are you supposed to wait to apply for ACAS until your name shows everything necessary under the "Verify Candidate's Status" section of the CAS website? I just passed Exam 6 and took the Course on Professionalism last week. So technically I got through everything I needed to, but just not sure if I need to hold off on applying.

The documentation states that you can submit an application once the CAS has all the requirements recorded. IIRC it didn’t take very long for them to record the COP credit. I don’t think it would hurt anything to start the application process and monitor the exam status page to know when you can actually submit. Deadline for recognition at the fall meeting isn’t until August 24. Got plenty of time!
