I have seen everyone talking about 3Qd and I was just wondering if this was a 3Qd letter?

We have received all your application information and the Admissions Committee has qualified your file academically and in physical aptitude. Your medical status is undetermined at this time. If you have any questions concerning medical qualification, you should direct them to: Department of Defense Medical Examination Review Board (DODMERB), 8034 Edgerton Drive, Suite 132, USAF Academy, Colorado Springs, Colorado 80840-2200; telephone: 719-333-3562. You have demonstrated strong initiative and diligence in completing your file. Although qualified, you are still competing for admission and should continue to update your record with significant achievements in academic, leadership, and extracurricular and athletic activities. Do not forget to include standardized test scores or updated transcripts from your most recently completed academic semester. We will continue to add achievements to your file through the end of February 2017.

My DODMERB marked me as qualified about a week after I received this letter. I have also recieved a Congressional Nomination. Does this mean I am 3Qd?
As far as that being a 3Qd letter - it is not. It says that you are academically and physically (CFA) qualified , but not medically qualified. I guess you can call it a 2 Q'd letter. It encourages you to stay the course.

But - since you you have been medically qualified since the letter, as Tug said - you are now fully qualified!
Since you have a nom, you will go on the NWL to wait for an appointment (unless you were the P-nom or had a LOA). You can still continue to update your file through 28 FEB to add more WCS points to your file, which moves you up on the NWL.
