Good Luck to you and again thanks for the reply back it helps other and gives them hope it would also be helpful to let everyone know your time line how many times you were denied and dates I'm glad that part of waiting is over for you now just to wait for the letter of award and the despoisit. Yea again
Also you could also help many on this board by checking back every once in a while
