    I have been reading in this forum about 3 Q letters showing up on candidates portals. My DS has not received any such letter. He had resubmitted his CFA on Feb 9 after not making the cut on the basketball throw the first time around. All sections are now green on his portal including 3 MOC noms. Is anyone else in the same boat? Should he be concerned?

    I'm in Great Lakes and my FFR says I'm 3Q but I haven't gotten a letter. They might have stopped sending them out. I've heard of other people from the Great Lakes region that have not received a 3Q letter either.

    casnmas - we are also Northeast and DS has not gotten a 3Q letter. He did send an e-mail to the RC a month or so ago, but received no response. He had asked how competitive his file was and whether or not and when 3Q letters would be sent, or when letters saying you are not academically qualified would be sent. We also ask our FFR, who said she did not have that information....so at this point, we are waiting for either the BFE (wondering if it will fit in our mailbox....), or the SWE (which I know will fit with no problem!!!).
    Let us know what type of response he gets from his FFR.

    Your FFR may not realize it, but she can look at your DS's file on the FFR database and see if he is 3Q'd or not.

    I'm also in the same situation. FFR says I'm Triple Qualified but no letter or PDF in the portal.

    buff - DS has his Eagle Scout Ceremony tonight (smile), but hopefully will be home after school and I will suggest he e-mail the FFR once again, along with the RC.

    We are in the Northeast and DS received a 3Q letter in December and an appointment in January, so they have definitely sent out some. His friend, who is also in the Northeast, received an appointment on the same day as my DS but had never received a 3Q letter.

    I'm in the Northeast as well, and I did not receive a 3Q letter until I asked my RC and FFR about it.

    My DS never received a 3Q letter. He is now a proud graduate, class of 2013. Good luck to all.

    I can only speak from my personal experience: I received my 3Q letter online shortly after WP received my fall semester transcripts. However, I also had my entire application, save semester results, done in September. Hope this helps!

    Can 3Q letter be an indication of the appointment?

    That’s a stretch to say. It is what it is – an indication of being fully qualified, which while needed for an appointment does not address competitive standing, relative rank, wait list, or other factors. So it is good in itself but not really an indicator of a pending appointment, that’s reading too much into it I’d say.

    It means you have a 54% chance of appointment. A principle nomination + 3Q 100% chance.

    As Buff81 said - the FFRs have on-line access to your West Point file. They can tell if you are 3Qd or not. The Admissions Officers are very busy now and might not have the time to send 3Q letters. Ask your FFR.
