    Posted this on USNA section but no response... Hoping to get some feedback here.

    On the VP nom website is states all letters of rec are to be sent to the USNA (or perspective academy). I understand that the USNA requires math and english teacher to fill out the online rec form on the application but what about additional letters of rec? Should candidates send in additional letters to the USNA to be used for the VP nom? I know USAFA application states 3 additional LOR can be sent in addition to the Eng/Math teacher so assume those would be used for the VP Nom as well. My question specially pertains to USNA since the application only asks for the Eng/Math online application and nothing else. What about the LOR for the VP nom?

    Looking for a BGO or someone with inside knowledge to respond and clarify. Thanks!

    No. Generally USNA neither expects or desires additional letters of recommendation.

    The 'rule' for USNA is that any additional letter of recommendation is due to the fact that the originator possesses unique knowledge of the candidate and can impart observations that are not presented anywhere else in the nomination process.
