This may sound like a broken record - but I have read here where the 3Q letter is a good thing - I had a previous grad that did receive an appt - but never a 3Q letter. I now have a Candidate that does have a 3Q letter - and many are chiming in that their candidate had a 3Q and did not receive an appointment. If you get a 3Q letter - are you "out"- do people with 3Q's get appointments? This wait is KILLING ME! Sitting here with a 3Q - and 2 nominations (Congresswoman and Senator).
