    I just got a letter in the mail today saying that I got my congressman's Principal Nomination. This is my second time to apply. I was 3q and did have a nomination, but no offer. I am currently in college. My question is the letter from my MOC stated " if you meet the medical and physical aptitude standards of the Academy, you will receive an appointment". I have two questions. First, does that mean I am still academically qualified form last time. And, Second does the slate still go before the board before an offer is possible?

    I recieved an email from the admissions committee stating that no college applicants will be reviewed (i.e. go before the board) until their grades fof the Fall '09 semester are received.

    Your DoDMERB physical from last year's cycle is still valid, but your CFA is not.

    I don't see why the whole slate would have to go before the board if a principal nominee was designated, but then again, i'm just a candidate, so take that for what it's worth.

    And last but not least, CONGRATULATIONS on the principal nomination!!!

    GO NAVY!

    The above poster is correct. USNA doesn't make offers to college students until first semester grades are in. If you're taking plebe courses (calc, chem, English, history) and getting As or high Bs in college, you should be ok.

    It is true that your medical is still good if nothing has changed. You need to repeat your CFA.

    The MOC "slate" doesn't go before the Board per se. The Board reviews candidates who complete their applications. For those who are triple qualified, USNA then looks to see if they have noms. If you are triple Q'ed and have a principal nom (which you do), you must be offered an appointment. If you aren't triple Q'ed, USNA goes to the other 9 on the slate. Even if you get the appointment from your MOC, the other 9 go into a pool and may still get an offer of appointment, with the nom coming from another source.
