    Is there any idea of how many 3Q pres Noms typically there are? I know of several applicants who boast about having a presidential nom but NO WAY would be academically qualified or competitive. They all went forth with getting the Nom thinking it was their "ticket" in. To those who do have the Pres and believe they will be 3Q, it would be great to have an idea of how many presidential noms they typically will be competing with in that that coveted 100 appointments. And YES! DS is applying for every other Nom option available to him just in case!

    The only way to know:

    a. The total number of Presidential Nominations
    b. The total number of Presidential Nominations that are "3Q"

    Would be to ask USAFA/RRS and they will NOT tell you. I doubt they'd tell me and I work for them!

    It's nothing for you to really be concerned about, in truth as it has no real bearing; your goal is to be 3Q and offered an appointment. Worrying about anything else is just wasted energy, IMHO. :biggrin:

    As you may know, Pres noms are non-competitive. Often, it alone is enough. Often, it is not.

    This year for USNA, over 800 candidates had Pres noms.

    Agree with Flieger83 on his other points.

    Very unscientific, but I know several 3Q applicants with Presidential nomination that did not get appointments to WP.

    The bottom line, there is in magic "ticket" to SA appointment. The closest thing to the "ticket" is joining the RC if you are 3Q material.
