    I am a reapplicant attending BYU Provo. I am participating in AFROTC and love it so far. However, I still have a strong desire to commission in the Navy. (BYU doesn't have NROTC). As a reapplicant, I know pretty much what is expected of me but I have a few questions.
    1 Is it acceptable to have TA's fill out evaluations? My classes all have over 300 students so getting to know the professors will be tough.
    2 I am not taking an English class this semester. Should I have my POLI SCI professor complete this or should I turn to a high school teacher?
    3 Finally, I had a 780 verbal 630 writing and 610 SAT. Should I retake the test?
    Note: I have already contacted my BGO but she hasn't responded for a week now.
    Thank you all in advance

    1. I do not think USNA would accept a recommendation from a TA. I think you have two options: (1) ask your senior year high school teacher; or (2) your college professor with input from the TA.
    2. Sounds like you need your senior year high school English teacher. USNA only accepts Math or English teachers and nothing outside that.
    3. If you can, I would recommend re-taking the SAT/ACT to get the math score higher (added emphasis if your high school math grades were not strong). Though, your college math course will be looked at very closely.

    BGOs normally have regular jobs and aren't always immediately available, so give her a little more time...she might also be looking into your answers.

    Thank you for your prompt response. I will be sure to follow your advice. I will keep that in mind regarding the BGO.
