Confusing. My DS has 5 NOMS. 3 USAFA & 2 USNA. Wondering if the amount NOMS increases his chances?
Very small town- class size about 14 or so. School does not offer much at all as far as sports or anything else for that matter. He is a second degree Black Belt in Taekwondo specializing in Olympic Sparing. He travels 3 hours round trip after school for training with his coach. Also trains with a current US National TKD Team coach regularly at many major events. DS has been a TKD practitioner since age 4. Has an impressive resume. Metaled in over 40 major national competitions. Participated in multiple international comps- US Open, Canada Open etc. made team trails for team USA on two occasions and was selected as an alternate once. DS was also selected as AAU athlete of the year twice. Attended SS last June and loved it.
SAT 610/ 690. GPA 3.85
Trying to get a sense of what the odds are. Anyone else have a similar DS DD?
More noms means if the SA wants him, they have more “lists” they can potentially slot him against. If he doesn’t win a spot on one list against all others with that nom, they can take a look at how he stacks up against the candidates with the other nom source. Failing that, and assuming he is fully qualified, he goes into the national pool and competes against everyone in the same situation. If he applied for the VP nom, there’s a shot at that.
No way of figuring actual odds.
If he hasn’t heard yet, he’s still in play.
If he really wants this and isn’t offered an appointment, and he’s got his Plan B ready to go, he puts his head down, excels at that, and re-applies.
