    On that long list of 2017 candidates who already have there appointments, is there anyone who is NOT one of the follôwing?
    1.) active duty
    2.) received the principal nomination
    3.) presidential nomination
    4.) loa holder
    5.) recruited athlete

    If you are not one of the above but already have an appointment can you elaborate?

    Not really sure what you mean by elaborate but here goes.

    I was neither 1, 3, 4, or 5, and I have no clue at to whether I was a principle or just on the slate of nominees. That being said, I was most likely not a principle nom. I have received my BFE though, so I'm assuming that something impressed them. As for not being in one of those five categories it is my understanding that as soon as they have completed your application review they notify you of you status. I could be wrong though, and as I've only done this once I can't say that I am really an authority on the subject.

    Best of luck and I hope this helps.

    First, congratulations! Well done! Great, good luck as you head toward I Day and Midshipmanship!

    I'm not sure you've got it totally correct. For your application and potential for being extended the offer of appointment may well be tied to the applicatons of the others on your nominating slate.

    For example, let's say you're on a slate of 10 unranked nominees. It may be that USNA admissions would want to be able to assess others on your slate prior to determining that MOCs designated appointee, which of course they are then given opportunity to inform that person. And so they'd want all the viable nominees to have completed evals in addition to yours so that you might be compared to each other. That is possible, if not fully likely that they were all fully completed, fully qualified to compete for an appointment.

    And so it is that while not necessarily so, it may be likely that indeed you were the designated principal and/or a pursuant, highly ranked individual on that slate whose name might become a de facto #1 as any above you might fall from the competition.

    Make sense?

    Again, congrats! Be good, be strong, be healthy, be smart!:thumb:

    If an MOC turned in his/her competitive slate very early and everyone on the slate had completed his/her application, USNA may have already decided who on that slate will receive that MOC's appointment.

    Also, not all slates have 10 candidates; in some cases, the number of applicants is fewer than the number of slots. So, in some cases, USNA may only be deciding between/among 2, 3, 5, etc. candidates for a slot, which could make things easier.

    Finally, not all districts/states are equally competitive. In some districts there may be a clear standout early on. USNA gives that person the appointment and the others go to the National Pool.

    I am neither 1, 2, 3,4, or 5.

    The insight I can give regarding my nom was my area interviews in November, so I knew what noms I had by Dec. I was not a principal nom as my Senators and Congressman do competitive slates, which both had LOA holders. I did receive two noms, but not a Presidential. I also have no idea where my nom was charged. Received appointment Dec 6. Hope this helps!
