I know there are approximately 2,000 candidates who are 3Qed and only about 1,500 are offered admissions, but does being on a MOC nomination slate of ten do anything to improve your status if you are 3Qed? That is, if you are not selected as the nominee by the academy, does this put you ahead of someone who was not on a nomination slate to begin with?
First of all you are not a nominee to the academy, you are a nominee from a nominating source. You can not become an appointee without a nomination. So if you are 3Q'd with a nomination you have a chance for an appointment. If you are 3Q'd without an nomination you can not be appointed.
