USNA (and maybe other SA's) considers their summer program application as a pre-application, essentially the first step in starting an application for direct appointment, but CGA does not. Not sure if USNA automatically reuses letters of recommendation since I don't think NASS actually requires them...letters of recommendation are also optional for AIM. Our applicants may reuse previously submitted letters of recommendation, although we don't recommend it, but the counselor/instructors will need to resubmit them as the Academy will not "transfer" old material from the AIM record.
