    I have a conditional offer of appointment. What are the chances I get the actual appointment? Am I pretty much as good as in? Can I 'relax' yet about it or is it still pretty much up in the air?

    We're going to assume that your "conditional offer of appointment is an LOA ....yes? If so, there are box(s) that are checked indicating what the condition is that the offer is predicated on and has yet to be submitted i.e. nomination, etc. There should also be language that spells it out and says" if these condition's are met, you are guaranteed an appointment, etc."
    At the risk of sounding flippant, not my intention, doesn't this answer your question? What are we missing here?

    Conditional Offer of an Appointment = Letter of Assurance (they are one and the same). As far as relaxing, you can't relax until you meet the stipulations as Sydney C. was explaining. Furthermore, no appointment is really guaranteed until I-Day. Getting injured or in trouble beforehand can jeopardize an offer of appointment....so BE SMART in EVERYTHING that you do (as you should always, but in particular, between now and I-Day).

    Have you met other conditions- nomination, medical, academics, CFA? If so, then a conditional offer of appt is a very good thing!

    Yes sir/ma'am, I have met all other conditions that needed to be turned for the dead line in January. I have a congressional nomination and passed my CFA. My academics are also solid. I have received a medical waiver for an injury I sustained a long time ago. I just have one bit of paper work to finish up by 3/11. Thank you for the encouragement, as I am not entirely sure how I should feel at this point (worried, happy, etc.)

    Update: The bit of paperwork was a body weight percentage. When I weighed in in December I was doing a lot of heavier lifting for conditioning and our fitness testing for our team at the end of the semester and weighed 168 at 5'7". I have slimmed down since this dream has slowly become more of a reality and now weight 160.2 and have a body fat percentage that is less then 33%. I am focusing more on cardio and such for better functional movement and to make pull-ups, push-ups, and running easier to get ready for June as softball shape is very different than . With those numbers I believe I will have met the conditions of my Conditional Offer of Appointment. Any further thoughts?
