    Are nomination committees able to view my file and see if my application is complete or not? One of my teachers is taking a long time to submit my recommendation so my application is still incomplete.

    My interviewers asked me about it. But they can see it too if they wish.

    Possible, but not likely. If BGO/ALO/FFR are on the nomination committee and if they have time, they could look up your application status. MOC reps have access to West Point admissions database, but I don't know the how much.

    I have no idea. But, if you want to use a different teacher, the SA can clear the submission and let you enter a new teacher. Are you certain the teacher dragging his/her feet will write a positive eval?

    I can't do that because USNA requires an 11th or 12th grade English teacher and my school works on an 18 week course system so I don't have a 12th grade English teacher yet and I won't have one until January, which is after the nomination process.

    Frenzy, I am assuming that you have spoken to the teacher already, so what is the response? I know you are most likely trying to handle this on your own, but perhaps one of your parents should get involved with letting her/him know how critical it is to complete the evaluation.

    We had same problem with one teacher and she did not budge until I got involved. I understand it is a delicate balance between pestering and nudging, but I also think that USNA will not hold it against you as you really have no control over whether or not your teacher completes the evaluation. Keep pressing forward.

    My DS nom committee knew that his application was complete.

    I have gone in to remind her about twice a week for the last month, and she keeps telling me that she will get it done. She appeared a tiny bit annoyed that I was reminding her again the last time I went to remind her so I think getting a parent involved would result in her being extremely annoyed and giving me a horrible evaluation. I would prefer not to take that route but if it starts getting close to the deadline and she doesn't do it I may have to.

    Have your parent speak to your guidance counselor/principal/vice principal to light a fire under her.
