    I have a quick question. About how many people receive nominations? And then, how many of them actually receive appointments.

    Thanks

    ~1600 get appointments (but about 1300+ end up accepting) and I think it should be noted that of those with nominations only 2200 are triple Q'd.

    I mentioned in another thread that if you are triple Q'd and have a nomination, there's a 78% chance that you'll receive an appointment (based off of last year's stats).

    I think I know what you mean Roman, but what does triple qualified mean? Does this refer to the academics, physical fitness, etc.? Thanks

    What do you mean by LOA's but NOT LOa's and Nominations? An LOA means LETTER OF ASSURANCE. They are assuring you that you will get an appointment to the academy IF you GET your nomination and you PASS your medical. They won't give an LOA out unless your application is 100% complete; with the exception that you haven't received your Nomination yet and/or haven't finished your medical review yet. So, it's IMPOSSIBLE to get an appointment with an LOA without a nomination. There are a lot of different nominations. And there are even a few unique slots that the academy has; but those count as nominations. So, does that answer the question, or do you need to rephrase it? later...mike....

    Reader's Digest version:

    Triple Q (Qualified)

    1. You achieve "candidate" status from the academy.
    2. You are cleared by DoDMERB (if you're not, you can get a medical waiver from the individual SA's)
    3. You have been nominated by a congressperson.

    Basically it means that you are qualified academically, physically, and have been nominated. later... mike....

    Incorrect - Triple Q has nothing to do with a nomination as you list in #3.

    Triple Q means:

    Q1 = Scholastically qualified. - you meet the standards academically (SAT/ACT, transcripts, school profile) and with your participation in sports, leadership, SGA, ALO interview, work history, essays and other EC's.

    Q2 = Physically qualified. You pass the Candidate Fitness Test.

    Q3 = Medically qualified. You have passed the DODMERB medical examination or have obtained a waiver.

    Last year, there were 2,099 3Q candidates that obtained nominations.

    Of those 2,099, 1,642 received appointments.

    That means there were 457 3Q'd candidates, WITH nominations, that did not receive an appointment.

    :cool:

    Yep - it is entirely possible to be 3Q'd and not get an nomination and also possible to get a nomination and NOT be 3q'd.

    Thank you for the clarification. I was lumping the CFA into the other 2 areas. I stand corrected. Thanks... mike.....

    Yeah man, its your thread so most def!

    If you are triple qualified then that means you are qualified medically, physically, scholastically. :thumb:

    Edit: that's weird, when I typed this those responses weren't up, but after I typed it they were. even though its been over a half hour since they were typed....

    I was looking at the profile for previous classes and theres no percentage for students not coming right out of high school. Does anyone know the typical amount of each class that comes with a year or more of college?

    Somewhere on this forum, I posted the 2012 stats. It included prior-enlisted numbers on it. But as far as those coming in at 19-23 years old, I'm not sure if it's broken down like that. Just gender, minorities, prior enlisted, etc... mike....
