    I have received an academically qualified letter and i know I passed the CFA and medical so I know that I'm 3Q'd, so if i get an alternate nomination, will they base it off who has the most "points" or if you are 3Q'd and you get an alternate nom does that give you almost a guarenteed appointment?

    You will be competing for an appointment against all other candidates with an alternate nomination. The Principle nominee being offered the appointment, if qualified.

    Your alternate status may change if he Principle nominee is not qualified or rejects the appointment. Keep in mind some candidates may not be rejecting their appointments until April - or later.

    Last year there were 659 3Q'd candidates with alternate nominations who did not receive an offer of appointment.
