I am a new subscriber and this is my first post. I am beginning the application process (I am a junior). I submitted my NASS application back in February but have yet to hear anything. Nonetheless I would like to start organizing things if I am deemed qualified and receive a candidate letter. I know that for a congressional nomination I will need three letters of recommendation. I have already decided who to ask for those. But for the USNA application, how many will I need? Will they ask for certain one, IE. a math teacher, science teacher, etc...? I would like to start lining these up now because the teachers get very busy with other students asking for recommendations in September. Any input /advise is appreciated. Thank you.
