    Hello Everybody,

    I just opened my file and had a question about LORs.

    Are we able to submit other LORs other than from teachers. For example, I am a volunteer firefighter and I would like my Captain to write me a LOR.

    Would West Point accept this LOR? Who exactly can send a LOR?

    Yes, that would be an acceptable LOR I'd say. It is unique too, a different perspective of you.

    Recommendation

    Hi
    I would absolutely send in this recommendation as I thank it would be viewed in a positive light by the academy. It may make your application stand out from the herd.
    Regards
    John

    Candidates have a feature in their portals called "Upload Docs" where they can upload extra letters of recommendation. You would just upload a PDF or picture of the letter.

    However I did see someone ask the same question to Admissions, and the answer was that there is a good chance that extra letters may not be read, as the focus is on the SOEs.

    That LOR might be very useful for your nomination application.

    I am a JROTC Cadet and my Rank is Cadet 2nd Lieutenant, that is why my name is 2ndLTgray.
