    unfortunately my english teacher has been having issues w/ my recommendation because he cant get in but he has already started. I'm done with my part. Will my application still be evaluated if he cant finish by the 31st?

    Hi
    If it were my DS I would have him find another teacher who likes him and get them to do it right away. But we stayed on top of the teachers and made them aware of the importance that they do this right away. The recommendation is not Rocket Science.
    Regards

    I highly encourage you to contact your Admissions Counselor as soon as possible. Explain the technological issues that you are having. As a teacher, I have filled out the recommendation form. As I recall, it is a series of ratings followed by a section for a brief written response. It takes literally 5 minutes to complete. Have the Academy reset your English teacher's portal and you should be fine. Best wishes. :thumb:

    trouble with recommendation form

    My son's math teacher had difficulty accessing the online recommendation form - his English teacher and History teacher had no trouble at all. It wasn't that the math teacher wasn't following through - the online address in the recommendation letter just didn't work for him. I then emailed him the letter from my computer and he was able to access the ilnk by clicking on the link in the letter. There was something that just didn't sync with his computer when he typed the address in directly. So, you might try that. Otherwise, assuming the issue isn't that the teacher just isn't following through, I agree with the suggestion to check with the admissions counselor.

    well i tried calling like 5 different people but none of them answered and the admissions help desk email link never worked so i sent the evaluation letter through fax... i sure hope they take it because it was the only thing that kept my status incomplete
