    Hi,
    My son is a candidate for class of 2015. He submitted e-mail addresses of 3 of his teachers for the online application (where they specifically request teachers - math, english and other). The "Instructions to Candidates" handbook says that you can submit up to 3 recommendations other than the school official's recommendation, if the person can speak about your character, etc. Does that mean you can submit an extra recommendation? If so, to what address?

    The reason I am asking is that my son has a great reference outside of school that we would like to submit. If we can, should we be talking to the liaison officer or the counselor assigned to see where we mail it? Has anyone run into this issue?
    Thanks for any help you can give us.

    It would appear you can submit 3 more, after the school teachers. I'm sure someone more experienced than me in this will give you a definite answer soon.

    You can send in up to three additional references and it is encouraged. I'm sorry I don't remember the address. Someone else will probably jump in with that answer.

    From USAFA application:

    While not required, you are highly encouraged to send in three letters of recommendation. These should be from people who know you well and who can provide insight into your character, leadership, and preparation for USAFA. They should not be from the three teachers who are completing our required teacher evaluations. DO NOT send in more than three letters, we will only consider three.

    You can fax the letters of recommendation to (719) 333-3012, or mail them to USAFA/RRS, 2304 Cadet Dr Ste 2300, USAFA, CO 80840-5025. Please include a coversheet with your full name and SSAN (to ensure the letters get into your file).
