    Hi everyone!
    I received a principal nomination and just found my candidate file has been found qualified by the Admissions Board (the notification letter showed up in my portal two days ago!)

    I wanted to make sure that meant a guaranteed appointment?! Thank you everyone!!:yllol:

    Yeah you're fine! Just make sure you don't get injured from now until R-Day.

    Yes, my DS did. Not a principal nomination. Has an LOE. Went to SLE. Not a recruited athlete either.

    Yes. My DD rec'd her appointment with no LOA, no LOE, no sports recruitment.
    She was not alone. Check out the appointment threads to see stats from those who posted.

    How about 3Q letters - the mysteriously elusive, 3Q letters? Has everyone appointed received a 3Q letter, and if so did you also receive an LOA or LOE? DS has e-mailed his FFR, his RC, his RC tech person about where he stands academically, and the strength of his file....FFR said she does not know that information, RC tech said only admissions knows this, and RC has not answered.....
    So for now, he is 2Q with a nom!

    I didn't think I would get the 3Q letter but immediately after they got my actual letter copy of my principal nomination I received it in my portal. I thought it was too late in the process to get it but apparently not. So yes I think you can still get the 3Q letter! :)

    3Q

    My DD got hers the morning of her overnight visit. I think, the RC is so swamped, that he just couldn't get to it. I would recommend overnights be scheduled after a candidate anticipates finishing their file. It gets U in front of your RC and he has most of the information needed to give you a warm and fuzzy (or what you should really be doing to finish strong).

    Yes, 3Q letter showed up in portal mid-December. LOE was received in the mail in Sept - never posted to portal.

    My DS has never seen a 3Q letter, LOE, LOA nor is he a recruited athlete. He was however offered an appointment. They certainly are nice to have but obviously if you do not have them does not mean you won't be appointed.

    DS did not receive LOE or LOA.

    Principal Nomination hit the portal on Jan 3 and a Qualifying Letter hit the portal on Jan 7. Never received an email or letter regarding the 3Q.

    Actual appointment arrived on Jan 18.
