    This is very good info. I think that the chart really helps those of you that are still waiting to understand your chances at this point and to understand how far you have come in the process. It is the most thorough chart that I have seen. Neugs, I appreciate your positive introduction of this chart!

    How is "Board Qualified" different from "Fully Qualified"?

    What is great about bringing this up now though is that many candidates are at that critical point right now holding their breath, wondering about their chances of getting an appointment vs. embracing their Plan B's. I think this kind of information is very helpful in allowing them to see, based on a few of their own statistics, where they actually stand. I believe this was OP's intent.:smile:

    I am assuming that it means you are board qualified with a nom.

    @george - I'm thinking the difference would include medical DQ's but looking at the numbers that seems like a LOT of difference between those two categories so maybe someone else knows what else I'm missing!

    @sgmom - that was my first thought too, but since it listed the noms higher up I figured the next cut meant it included only candidates with noms.

    Board Qualified is 3Q.

    Fully Qualified is 3Q + nom.

    So if you look at the chart and you are an African American female who is triple-qualified and you have a nomination, you have an 97% chance of being offered an appointment.

    On the other hand, if you look at the chart and you are white female who is triple-qualified and you have a nomination, your chances for an appointment fall all the way down to 61%.

    I'm sure this has been mentioned, but how does one know they are 3Q?

    I know that for West Point, Candidates that are 3Q'd receive letters stating that they are 3Q'd. It may be the same way with USNA.

    I'm not so sure. Board qualified can mean scholastically qualified. Fully Qualified can refer to someone who is scholastically, physically, and medically qualified.

    However, without more, it's hard to know how those terms are used on the chart.

    So pretty much if you're an African American female who's 3'qd and has a nomination then you're in.

    Unfortunately I fall under the Caucasian male category so according to those statistics there's less than a 50% chance I get in. (I'm 3'qd with a nom).

    That disparity was also what jumped out at me. Guess I should count my blessings that both sons (Caucasian males) ended up with appointments with those odds! :redface:

    However, you can look at it from a different perspective - look at the starting numbers. Again looking at the class of 2014, only 4% of those African American females who started files ultimately got in, while 8% of the Caucasian males did. Kind of hard to judge based on overall stats like this.

    I think the bottom line of each category "fully qualified offered" makes the diversity goals crystal clear. I'm shocked.

    Maybe I should get a tan...

    Seriously, love the chart!

    How do you know if you're 3 Q'd? Does that mean being an official candidate?
