    Good day;
    DS has completed his CGA on-line application. Recommendation providers listed and notified. He asked me if he should submit his application before the recommendations are received. I did not have a good feel whether he should wait for the recommendations and submit, or submit now.

    Any guidance would be greatly appreciated! :redface:

    Last year my son submitted his online application before the recommendations were sent. The recommendations are added to his admissions file as the academy receives them.

    He can submit his application whenever he's ready...his recommendations are electronically "connected" to his profile/record whether they're submitted before or after he actually submits his application.

    If you had to change one of the recomendation providers, can you still do so if the app has been submitted? Thanks!

    Yes...applicants can change their recommendation providers at any point prior to the recommender actually submitting the letter of recommendation.
