    When do appointees have to notify the academy whether or not they accept the appointment? Still on wait list just wondering generally when the academy might send out a new wave of appointments to wait listed candidates

    Good for you guys! Still waiting to hear something. My friends application switched to qualified not selected. Do u have any idea what that means?

    Yes. It means they were qualified, but unfortunately they are not high enough on the wait list (with remaining possibilities) to be accepted this year. They should go ahead with plan B and try again next year if they so desire.
