Hey guys, I was notified that I am on the NWL. I've heard this means I didn't get the slot for my MOC's slate, but I read on this forum that with a MOC who doesn't rank candidates, such as mine, all of the candidates in my MOC slate are placed on NWL and the one who gets selected for the slot is chosen at a later date end of Feb/beginning of March.

Is this true? Could I still get the slot for my MOC?

Thanks!

Once 3Q everyone is put on NWL regardless of status of MOC slate. A slate could be resolved early or later in the process - only the MOC office and admissions have this info.

Correct - pretty much every 3Q gets the 'no rolling admissions / NWL' memo around Jan/Feb once noms are done.

The 'real' NWL comes into play after March when all appointments are out and waiting for declines so those spots can be reappointed. Remember college acceptance deadline is May so not a lot may happen until then for waiting list.

DS got the same memo last year and appt Feb 14. It's confusing but don't sweat it yet.
