Considering how competitive it is this year (and the impending reduction in class size), I am wondering if anyone has any perspective on how many appointments are offered from the national pool (people with nominations who were not offered appointment). It was my understanding that typically there are about 6000 cadets with various types of nominations, of these about 600-700 are offered appointments, that means that the remaining 5300 or so are then placed into a national pool and the remainder of the class is appointed from there. Is that correct? This might be good information for us to understand as this process continues in March. Best!
