Looking for some clarity on which candidates make it to the National Pool and which ones don't. From what I understand, only the 3Q candidates who are not slate winners go to the National Pool, and from that group (several thousand?), there are about 3-400 appointments, 75% of which must come from MOC nominated candidates. The question is about those candidates who are 2Q with Nom, who do not have a waiver yet, but have not been denied one either. USNA clearly states that a waiver is only initiated once a Conditional Offer is made. So, does this mean that candidates who need a waiver are out of the running if they don't win their slate? Or does it mean that 2Q candidates are, in fact, included in the National Pool, and if they are competitive enough they can get a conditional offer then a waiver? If the waiver doesn't happen, then they go to the next one of the list?
