    I am in my second go around of apply to the academies and will now be going to Marion Military Insitute for this year. For the application do I need to have my math and English teacher from Marion give their evaluations or do they still need to come form high school teachers?

    This would be a great question for your ALO. In my opinion, a college teacher's recommendation would have greater weight than a high school teacher's simply because it's more recent and speaks to your college level work.

    DS -MMI ‘14 USAFA ‘18 used recs from MMI and his local youth minister that knew him for a very long time. College work performance is the new paradigm replacing HS performance....think about it this way... you aced a non challenging HS and then struggled with college level work... which would be a better indicator of your possible performance at one of the Academies?
    That is what they want to see... college performance!!

    When in doubt, reach out...to your ALO, and as many have mentioned, read those directions:)
