    My Blue and Gold Officer said that I have been found triple qualified, yet they hadn't made a decision on my application (I have two nominations). I am new to this forum, so I apologize if there is already a post about this but what exactly does it mean?

    My DS is in same "ship" (so to speak). His BGO told him same thing, now just a waiting game. Means you are qualified academically, physically and with a nom! DS has been "complete pending review" since 30 Jul 2015 and nom received 15 Dec 2015! DS has had a few from his NASS be selected for 2020! The rest of us just sit and wait.

    GO NAVY, BEAT ARMY!

    Actually, 3Q is 1) DODMERB, 2) CFA and 3) Scholastic, NOM is not part of that. Those who are 3Q AND have a NOM are in the running for an appointment.

    Tons of prior threads with more details on this topic.

    Thanks for clarifying. Would you also happen to know how many people typically make it to this stage (Triple Q'd and Nominated)?

    Statistically it is just under 50% of being offered an appointment. So, it is a decent hurdle to overcome...but now you compete for an appointment on a slate or in the national pool.

    Thank you very much for the information. I take it from your username that you are a Blue and Gold Officer as well. My two nominations are Presidential and Child of Deceased or Disabled Veteran. Are those typically competitive nominating sources to receive an appointment under? Is one more competitive than the other?

    Never heard it put like that....so 1 out of 2 odds to get appointment. Looking better all the time. At least we don't have a TWE:)

    I don't think of it as necessarily getting better....if a file goes to the Admissions Board it is about the same, statistically. Now, the competition beings among all those who are fully qualified.

    If you are deemed 3Q and applied to VP for nom (applied to all available sources for nom but did not receive one from MOC) will you go into national pool for consideration?

    That is a very good question and I do not have a definitive answer on that. The 10 nominees per vacancy only applies to MOCs, delegates, and RC from Puerto Rico. There is no stipulation for the VP...so it is possible candidates who applied, but were not selected to fill the VP vacancy (or vacancies), might be considered VP qualified alternates. In a previous thread, I mentioned that there are two "pools" --- the first, only for MOC qualified alternates, is 150 appointments selected in ranked order; the second, is for all qualified alternates, but at least 75% must be from VP, MOCs, delegates, or RC from Puerto Rico. So if the candidate was not on the MOC slate, but was on the VP...the only consideration would be in the second pool. That is how I believe it is done.

    I didn't think BGOs were permitted to tell a candidate if they were 3Qd. Ours simply said, well you have everything in, it looks great, now you sit and wait.

    They are advised to not notify candidates if they are 3Q, obviously some do.

    @usnabgo08 is this by statute or by policy?
