After reading various posts, I want to check my understanding of appointment status updates. My DS portal status states "complete pending review". Does this mean: 1. He is 3Q 2. Nomination on file (he received MOC nomination in December) 3. Final review not complete (he was asked to submit 7th semester grades which he has) So for next steps: 1. MOC state slate needs to be finalized which could include an appt for my DS. 2. If DS doesn't get appt for MOC nomination he could get appt under some other MOC's empty slate but this will take some time to sort out. My remaining questions: 1. If DS is on NWL, how would it be stated on portal? 2. Is there any communication/awareness between SA's? DS has received appt for USMMA. Does this help/hurt/not make any difference for USNA appt? 3. Does admissions board review entire state candidates at the same time and make appt decisions or is it random? For those who have the knowledge, please correct any of the above statement. Thanks!
