    I've been looking at other applicants applications, and I see that people have more than just the English, Chem/Phys, and Math SOEs. Should I submit more from other teachers? And how would I do that?

    Also, only submit additional ones if those school officials like you!

    I don't see any button that says add additional SOEs...where would it be? Might there be a reason that I don't see it?

    I don't either. Could this option only be available to college students?

    I am a college student as well. Within the SOE section of my portal at the bottom it says add additional SOE contact in red letters. I just clicked on it. Does this make it more clear?

    If you don't I'm not sure why you wouldn't be able to see it. Email admissions they would definitely know.

    I'm not seeing anything other than my three required SOEs in that section. Maybe it is just a college student thing? I'll e-mail them right now.

    I believe this option is only available to college students. I am a high school senior applying and there is no button to add additional SOEs. If a college student is re-applying, they will most likely already have their three high school SOEs in their candidate file. They will then need to add SOEs from their college professors, which is where the additional SOEs come from. High school candidates will only have three SOEs submitted.

    SOE

    I think its only available to those who are re-applying. This is to add college or prep school SOEs. My DS just recently had his filled out at prep.

    Is it required to have college professors to submit SOEs? Because I have all high school teachers/coaches, but I have a total of 7 haha or am I fine?

    Have SOE, will Party!!

    I guess you have an SOE party going on your portal. I didn't think you could do more that three at the High School level. I thought it was just the three that could be input online.

    I believe you should have college professors submit SOEs on your behalf. Look at the "Instructions for Applicants" booklet on your candidate portal and there should be information on submitting SOEs when you are in college.

    I'm curious... Why did you have coaches submit SOEs? I thought that SOEs are only for academic subjects. I could see if a coach would write a letter of recommendation for you, but why an SOE?

    One of the options was 'Other' and he had already completed a letter of recommendation for me, so he filled it out since he is a School Official. The other required subjects were completed.

    Okay, I just wondered why you had so many SOEs. Thanks for the clarification. Good luck with the process!
