Not sure if I should still be hopeful if I never got a finalist notification. Has anyone who wasn’t a finalist get a countersignature?

Medical, 1st round finalist no countersignature. Maybe the 3 people who say they got a counter signature are making it up as a joke. Last year all the countersignatures went out on the same day (Sept 14th) so I really really like really hope this year will be different.

Someone on Facebook posted a screenshot, highly doubt it’s a joke. I really think it’s different this year. Scary but let’s keep our fingers crossed!! :)

1st round med finalist, no countersignature yet. Has there been anybody who's a finalist through the med route who received a countersign yet?

Highly likely... can't prove one way or another

I don’t really see the benefit in joking around about it. I’m hoping you all receive good news this week though... because the countersignatures are definitely coming in. Stay positive

In case anyone’s curious, I just checked my contract since it showed up at 2:30 yesterday, and still no countersignature for me.

It seems majority of the people have not received the counter signature on Sep 9th. Is any one brave enough to call NHSC to find out?

If you were a first round finalist? What date did you upload your W4 and enrollment verification when you were accepted as finalist/accept your contract? (Like Aug 6-12)

Edit : I am guessing that countersign is happening based on date when you accepted the offer. Like in earlier picture above, the applicant upload the docs in Aug 6th and accepted 3yrs contract.
I completed those docs and accepted the finalist offer on Aug 7th.

Hoping you're right about that! I was a first round finalist and accepted the offer/submitted documents Aug 12th, but still no countersignature.

You’re not alone, I’m also in the same position. Still holding out hope.
Congratulations to everyone who received the scholarship!

Good luck to those who are still waiting. My fingers and toes are crossed for all of you! I'm sure it will come soon!!

That is the reasonable explanation that I could come with for right now.
I'll pray for you. Good Luck!
I'm hoping this is true! I was a first round finalist. I still haven't received a countersignature, but I didn't submit my documents until August 11th.

Hi -- long-time lurker here, med 1st time 4 yr applicant. 1st round Finalist, signed/w4/etc on 8/7.

I downloaded the contract and see a 2:30pm countersignature on that PDF from Jamie King. But the status page still says "Accepted Award -- Under Final Review" as it has for the last month. Just to be clear here -- that's what people are seeing also when they say "countersigned" I assume?

Be sure to check the actual contract, which you'd download as a PDF. The website still claims I'm under final review, but I have the counter signature. Good luck everyone! Hoping everyone has great success!!
