    Anyone know when the admissions people are meeting? I remember last year hearing about when they went to meeting twice a week but feel like we haven't gotten any update like that yet.

    I met with my BGO and he said they met every friday. They have 5 minutes to look over each packet and they place you in a YES, NO, or MAYBE pile. As long as you keep hitting the maybe pile you should be good... Of course this is just what he told me.

    So, if you are in the "no" pile do you receive your TWE on a timely basis?

    It appears you are mixing the proverbial apples and oranges. My understanding is that the Board determines whether you are qualified. That can be yes, no, or deferred. Probably not many/any defenders at this point. Then they have to match up 3Qs with noms to offers of appointments. That takes a while.

    If you are not considered qualified at this point, AND you are not considered for NAPS/Foundation, you probably will be notified fairly soon. However, some who aren't qualified for a direct appointment may be qualified for NAPS/Foundation.

    You might be confusing two different things, depending on what you mean by "admissions people." The Admissions Board meets on Thursdays, reviews candidate records, and determines Board qualification based on the whole person assessment. They do not recommend or determine appointments, and candidates are not informed of their Board qualification status. Candidates who are medically qualified by DODMERB, physically qualified by passing the CFA, and Board qualified are sometimes referred to as "triple qualified". Candidates who are triple qualified and who receive a nomination are eligible to compete for an appointment.

    A separate group within Admissions begins to fill the class from those eligible to compete for an appointment. That process is complex, to say the least. I am not aware that they convene on any specific date. I think that their work is ongoing until the class is filled.
