LOA questions

Hi,

I just recieved a LOA and I wanted to clarify some things.
From reading other posts, I know that people who don't get a LOA can get appointed and people who receive LOA might not get appointed. So what is an approximate percentage of applicants who get LOA will get appointments?
My second question is how does a LOA transition to an appointment? I currently have a nomination and a qualified CFA. All I need to get is a medical waiver. Does that mean if I get a waiver, I'll get an appointment, or are there some other things to it?

Thanks!

Yes. Waiver means 3q and appointment.

No waiver ... no appointment.

Read the LOA. It states exactly what will happen.

It is a Conditional Offer of Appointment. What the Letter of Assurance does, is assure you that if the condition is met, you will receive a fully-qualified offer of appointment. If you don't get the waiver, you will not receive an offer of appointment.

As for the percentage of LOAs who get offered appointments, I don’t think anyone knows.

My guesss would be above 90%.

Since you know you have a nom, passed the CFA and have an LOA you can assume you are scholastically qualified. Your conditions to turn this into an appointment should specifically be called out in the letter. It sounds like it is medical. Not our business what your DQ is for and no need to disclose it, but if you get a waiver then you will be in. LOAs that occur early in the admissions cycle usually have more conditions like a Nom. Not sure on stats for those with an LOA but guessing it’s very high. Those who don’t get in with an LOA it’s usually because they didn’t secure a nom, pass the CFA or receive a medical waiver.

My nephew received a LOA last fall, but needed a waiver because of a sports injury a couple years ago. The family learned my nephew was medically qualified in mid February, and he received the official notification of his appointment the beginning of this week. The process was long, but once my nephew received his medical waiver the official appointment only took a couple weeks.

Ditto above. my DD had an LOA and Noms this year. Had to wait for the waiver. She received it about 2 weeks ago and has now received appointment. Best of luck.

The only reason you should receive an LOA at this point is if you have a medical issue that needs to clear before I-Day. You could receive an LOA which, assuming you have a nom, would turn into an appointment upon clearing medical.
