    Is there somewhere on the portal that states your are 3Q or is it an internal designation that only admissions sees/awards?

    It seems to be up to each RC whether or not the letter is posted to a candidate's portal.

    Could someone tell me what VMI & RPI mean? In the USCGA thread/forum, I read that they are schools that some have been recommended to or received scholarships to. Not sure which ones. I would appreciate any feedback.

    Just learned these three, used by USNA (and probably the other branches as well)

    CONUS: Continental United States
    OCONUS: Outside the continental United States.
    MAGTF : Marine (Corps) Air -Ground Task Force

    They are not on the list on page one of this thread.
