I mean, Bones was technically a cadet, but he had his medical degree.
Don't split hairs, it's pretty irrelevant whether he was half-trained, a third trained or three quarters trained, it's just a figure of speech. The point is that Kirk wasn't an Academy graduate, and expecting a seasoned crew to follow orders from some kid who never graduated is something which would never happen in the real world.
