    Hey everyone,

    I'm currently a junior and was wondering who exactly we need recommendations from. I heard recs are supposed to be from math teachers, lit teachers, guidance counselors and chem/physics teachers but I'm not sure if that assumption is true. Thanks!

    One math teacher recommendation and one english teacher recommendation. No more, no less.

    Your guidance counselor will be asked to submit a school profile, but that's not a recommendation.

    Remember you'll also need recs for nominations. For my senatorial, I had coach fill one out and Principal fill one out.

    Your best bet for finding out what recommendations are required is to go the USNA website, www.usna.edu. If you click on Admissions and follow the prompts, the site will tell you exactly what you need to know.

    Regarding guidance counselor recommendations, while the counselor may only be required to submit a school profile to USNA, he/she might have to write a recommendation as part of your application for your MOC nomination. Again, a primary source is always your best bet for information, whether it's the USNA website or your MOC's website.
