So I have a general understanding about how the nomination process works, but I still have some questions. I was waitlisted for the Class of 2016, but did not receive an offer of appointment. What I'm confused is how how my district had one slot for the academy that year, no one else got an offer of appointment, was still 4 Q'ed(Academic, Activities, Physical/Medical, and Nominated; even appointed to another SA as well), but was still not offered an appointment? From what I understand, if let's say Wyoming's congresswoman has two slots and none of her nominees are qualified, then those two unused slots can be allocated elsewhere in the nation. But if Wyoming's congresswoman had two slots, and one qualified candidate, how is it possible that the candidate might possibly not receive an offer of appointment? My only guess would be that it's something with how my MOC ranked their nominees, but even then I still don't understand. Can anyone provide some clarification on this?
