    This is my first time using this forum. I have completed my application (I am triple qualified, meaning I have completed the application with my physical test and congressional nomination). Now, it's just a waiting game. When do they usually send out letters of acceptance? Also, random question, how many people receive the nomination? Is it hard to receive a nomination?

    Can't answer about the when, but your other quantitative questions are easily answered on the USNA website. You can easily determine the number of nominations received and the number of those appointed with some simple calculations by looking here: http://www.usna.edu/Admissions/documents/ClassPortrait.pdf

    I don't know if the number of appointments is increasing, decreasing, or staying the same this year.

    Triple Qualified + Nomination IS NOT a guarantee offer of appointment.
    Also, I presume Admissions told you that you were triple qualified. If not, then you aren't necessarily triple qualified.

    Appointments go out on a rolling basis, with most in Feb, Mar, and Apr.

    Most of them usually roll out around late February and March, though you could get an appointment as late as June if waitlist happens.

    Difficulty receiving a nom depends in large part on where you live. In some areas of the country, there are more nom slots then there are qualified candidates. In those areas, your chances are great if you are qualified.

    In many areas, the number of qualified candidates far exceeds the number of noms in which case it's hard to obtain a nom even if you are qualified.

    As stated above, being triple qualified with a nom means you are qualified to compete for an appointment (unless you have an LOA or are a principal nominee). So, it's a waiting game to see if you will be offered an appointment.
