1.Realized it was easier and faster to contact students via email because of smart phones. 2.Posting FAQS on the MyCom Portal greatly reduced the number of phone calls to A&R because students now had an online resource. 3.Originally Pending, Approved and Denied petitions were all stored together. Now we have the ability to search among all three statuses or search by student name. 4.Much easier to read/decipher online forms.
