What does this letter mean? Is this a triple Q letter or a NWL letter?

    We have received all your application information and the Admissions Committee has qualified your file. West Point has eliminated rolling admissions for this cycle. As such, all qualified applicants are placed on a National Waiting List until appointments are made. Most appointments will be tendered between 26 February and 1 May 2015.

    You have demonstrated strong initiative and diligence in completing your file. Although qualified, you are still competing for admission and should continue to update your record with significant achievements in academic, leadership, and extracurricular and athletic activities. Do not forget to include standardized test scores or updated transcripts from your most recently completed academic semester. We will continue to add achievements to your file through the end of February 2015.

    Although most offers of admission will be tendered before 1 May 2015, final selection from the waiting list may be made only a few days before the class enters.

    Thank you for your continuing interest in West Point. Go Army!

    Does this mean I was not good enough to be given an appointment and now I have to hope people reject theirs?

    It means you are triple qualified. Now, like the rest, you hope your WCS (ranking) relative to your peers warrants an appointment. As they clearly stated, most appointments are tendered 26Feb - 1May. Translated that means they haven't awarded all the appointments which means you are not waiting for others to reject theirs.

    Good luck and happy mail watching!!

    Hmmm, different than what I got. Mine specifically says academically, medically and physically:

    "We have received all your application information and the Admissions Committee has qualified your file academically, medically and physically. We are still waiting for a nomination before we can consider you for an appointment."

    PS nomination is in now....

    I wonder why the most recent one does not specify the three areas that are qualified.

    Fairly sure it's because he's waiting on a nomination so he has yet to be placed on the national waiting list while the OP has been nominated. They're both triple qualified but one is nominated and as such is in line to be reviewed and is on the NWL while the other still has to get his or her nomination.
