Nominated and fully qualified yields how much acceptance?

    I was browsing through some old info and saw this link.

    http://www.westpoint.edu/bov/siteassets/meeting minutes/Signed Meeting Minutes 20120614.pdf


    Apparently nominated and qualified on the class profile means simply that. Qualified means they met the benchmarks and nominated means they have a nomination. The candidates that are fully qualified (i.e. nominated+tripleQ) have much higher chances according to these statistics (albeit they are older). That being said just getting nominated+triple Q seems to put a candidate to a high chance of an appointment (75-85%).

    If these stat are how they appear how come so many districts have 10 nominated, but only 1 accepted from the whole district?

    I as fully qualified and nominated last year and didn't get in. It's all a matter of how high you are on the NWL.

    I don't know what the stats are. I've seen 50% elsewhere. Having a nomination + 3Q is, in a sense, the minimum that must be achieved in order to have a chance of appointment. If you don't achieve that your chance of appointment is 0%.

    I believe where the 50% statistic comes from is where it says qualified (around 2200) and then accepted (around 1200). From my link it says *fully qualified which may mean nominated and qualified. So what I'm thinking from the link is that it may either be incorrect ,or maybe the admissions doesn't list the stats of applicants that are nominated and qualified to make someone "fully" qualified. I wish someone knew more on the matter, but it seems as if the only ones who would are the RC's.

    I believe the 50% statistic is more correct. It's similar to the Naval Academy. Around 4000 get a nomination and roughly half are found 3Q and half of that pool is appointed.

    Depends on how competitive the district is. For example in our district last year there were 8 who accepted an appointment to USMA and another who was offered but chose another Academy.

    Only one of those 8 were "charged" to the congressional slate. The others either won another slate or were picked up in the National pool.

    A simple answer is that many of nominted are not determined to be fully qualified. Only couple districts in my state consistently nominates full 10 candidates to West Point. Of Congressional districts that nominated full 10 candidates, usualy not all 10 nominees are determined to be fully qualified.

    Thanks that clears things up, but what makes a candidate "fully qualified" vs. triple qualified?

    3Q+nomination is purely a Service Academy Forum term. West Point admissions uses the term Fully Qualified to mean the same thing. There are several other nuances between the lexicon used here and in admissions, but most RC's do learn to use them interchangeably when conversing with candidates vs. the admissions committee.

    Ah, ok. That's what I thought it most likely meant. It's nice to know that your chances are much higher than it seems from the way they list it on the class profiles.
