Which one is harder to attain, a nomination or an appointment? i am hearing from some that thousands upon thousands of candidates recieve nominations-that it is nothing more than a pre-requisite, and that the real challenge is getting the appointment. Others, on the other hand, seem to suggest that once i have the nomination i have a very good chance at getting appointed. they say that only 4000 (some even insist 2000) candidates get nominations and around 1600 get appointments, which means i have a great chance at appointment. Which one is it? thanks for your help.
