    We used to live on PB and J - and apples. For those of us meeting mids at PPW - just prepare to break the bank buying fruit this weekend. I've already resigned myself to buying a fortune of berries!

    Recommendations from teachers.

    And if you choose to use senior year teachers, they typically have to have taught you for at least a quarter of the year. DS waited until end of Oct to turn in application in order to have Senior year math teacher do his instead of Junior year teacher. Ask your admissions officer - they can...

    2025 USNA Permit to Report Letter

    I hope that is not the case. Trashing someone's belongings - in particular a passport - doesn't seem like behavior we expect of the officers they are supposed to become!
