So my DS got notified he is being deferred to the Regular Selection period in March and "not to worry, about 50% of the appointments are from the Regular Selection period." So what does that mean? How many of the "early action" selections given LOAs and just need a nomination and how many are simply appointments that are applied to Presidential or other nomination sources? Doing the math with 535ish nominations from MOC each year that is half anyway. I have heard that if you have at least one nomination from a MOC you have about a 50/50 shot based on others in the MOCs slate not being 3Q for some other reason or choosing some other option for school. Just want to be able to reassure my DS (and his Mom) all is not lost.
