    I just saw that I was nominated by my congressman on the USNA admissions profile. As I am excited, I am wondering how does this increase the odds? I passed my medical exam and did fairly well on my CFA so I do not believe I could be DQed for that. Roughly how many people are left after nominations that are medically and physically qualified?

    CONGRATULATIONS on the nom!!! What an honor. Well, it is simply a requirement to apply...you have to be medically, academically, and physically qualified and have a nomination just to be able to apply. Now that you have the nom, your pool competition decreases from 15,000 down to about 4,000 that actually receive noms.

    Thank you! Definitely excited. I believe I passed the CFA. My scores are below. Is it possible that these scores are good enough to not only pass, but actually help my application?

    Yes those are good scores. On the CFA packet that you may or may not have printed it gives the "maximum" scores in a chart on the second page. Those all come within reason of the Max score for each event

    Youngest Daughter had nomination to USAFA and USNA with great grades and good CFA. She has decided to withdraw her applications. I was only mad that she took another kids nomination but did not discuss it with her. AF Colonel was really pissed when he wanted to interview her and current USNA BGO was the one who presented her sister with her appointment and he was disappointed also. Good match?? I don't know if she is trying to emulate her sister or does not want too. If you have the nomination go for it. I day is wonderful (for your parents)l.

    Definitely going for it! It is been my number one school for a while and I hope I've made that clear to the admissions. I have already been on a CVW in the fall and it seemed like the perfect fit. Definitely hoping it works out!

    Let me put it this way: without a nomination you would be dead in the water - end of the road this cycle. With a nomination you are eligible to continue through the selection process. If you look at a Class Profile for any of the recent years you will discover that NAVY has been reporting more than 15,000 per class. The selection of nominees is the first big cut in the number of eligible candidates, and typically about 6500 nominations are awarded (be aware that some candidates will have more than one nomination). Of that number (6500) about 5100-5200 will be awarded by MOCs (Members of Congress), about 800 will be Presidential noms, SecNav will have about 300 noms, and the rest will come from various sources - check a Class Profile for more specifics. Of the 65oo nominees about 25oo will be deemed fully qualified by Admissions (again be aware of those with multiple noms). Usually USNA will extend about 1400 offers of appointment, and will end up with about 1200 new midshipmen. Note: this is a fast and dirty presentation of the winnowing process that is just starting for the Class of 2019 candidates - the actual numbers vary from year to year, but I have used a RANGE of numbers to make the process less complicated. Best wishes to all of you, and brace yourselves as the next couple of months may be an eternity. Don't attack your local postal employee, they really are just the messengers!
