    Okay, so I've heard of Board/Fully Qualified, but my BGO just told me his BGO report says I'm "TQ: Totally qualified." Haha, what does this mean?
    I just received a nomination and my application is 100% completed (like two months ago).

    I would guess he means Triple Qualified, meaning Board (scholastically) qualified, medically qualified, and physically qualified. Since you have a nomination and are triple qualified, you are now competing for an appointment. Congratulations! Except, here comes the wait..

    There is no "official" designation as TQ in the BGIS system. I think he/she may mean "triple qualified" as the above poster described -- scholastic, medical, CFA. As the above poster also correctly said, with a nom that means you're eligible to compete for an appointment.

    Unless you are a MOC principal nominee, you LIKELY will be waiting until Feb. or March to hear. But you are well positioned.

    Generally, it is said that half of all candidates designated triple qualified that have nomination receive an appointment. So not all that many will end up like that.
