    hello all,
    Congratulations to all that have recieved appointments! As indicated by the thread title, when does the second wave come out? I'm a little behind in the game since I thought i hadn't received a nomination, so i hadn't finished my app. My CFA should be uploaded by tomorrow and I sent my transcript by mail Monday, so I should expect it to arrive by the end of the week give or take. Other than those two items, my file is complete. Will I possibly be considered/ presented tothe admissions board next week, and hopefully make the cut for the second wave? Thanks

    No.

    Once your file is complete (and it could take a couple weeks for your transcript to arrive AND be inputted into the system given everyone sending updates now), your file has to go through the qualification review (RC, admissions committee member, other RC). That process alone usually take two weeks. Once your file is qualified (3Q) and if you are the top in the district, then your file would go to the admissions committee for a decision on an offer.

    Unless you are looking like you are the top candidate in the district, you probably hurt your chances significantly by not finishing your application earlier.

    Anyone thinking this Thursday? 3Q Letter stated that most appointments would be tendered from 26 Feb to 1 May.

    Hahaha! Oh goodness. I've resigned myself to thinking that I won't get it. Forcing myself to fall in love with a very solid plan B. It's working. Especially since plan B has a top ranked cafeteria.

    Still. I'd rather be chewed out by the Cadet in the Red Sash than chew on really good food myself.

    I've eaten at both Wheaton and the mess hall at WP.
    Wheaton certainly deserves their top ranking in cafeteria food. It is awesome!!!

    According to the 3Q letters, "Most appointments will be tendered between February 26 2015 and..." So, my guess would be that the next wave was selected by the board that met today. With appointments going out tomorrow/notifications reaching appointees on Thursday, the 26th. That's my guess anyway.

    That guess seems like it makes the most sense...but then again, many of my guesses have been wrong in the process so far.

    no updates here. Does anyone know how competitive a 30 ACT on the NWL may be based on history? I'm qualified with a nomination.

    I figure that would be pretty competitive. When do you think any updates or appointments will come out?

    Updates and calls from MOCs tend to start going out the Thursday after the board meets (aka, the 26th). I wouldn't expect anything until then.

    Also, don't read too much in the class profiles and such. Many candidates with stellar ACTs are denied, and many candidates with subpar SATs are appointed. We've all done what we can. It's not in our hands.

    :confused::confused::confused:I received a 2Q letter 2 weeks ago, and the day after they received my Medical qualification (3Qing me). However, i havent received a 3Q letter. Do they give both 2Q and a 3Q letter? Does this mean I'm probably not in the second wave even though they have had all my info for a couple weeks?

    very qualified etc.

    Im freaking out haha
