I think I am now in the national pool. My MOC just informed me that the two slots were used already. What are the numbers for the national pool? Usually how many people get accepted from the National Pool and how many are in it?
For Navy, what I have heard on the forum is that about 150 candidates from the national pool will be offered appointments. This pool consist of candidates that were considered 3Q'd but did not win their slates( hope I am not wrong). Maybe someone associated or knowledgeable with process at USFA could give you a better answer and explanation. Good luck!!
