Hello, Just wondering if anyone has a similar situation: My son was in the running for the USNA last year, but did not gain acceptance. He has strong academics, CFA, and athletics. Can't understand why they didn't accept, but that's life. He is reapplying and during one of our conversations the topic of letters of recommendation came up. He is now a senior and has been accepted to a prestigious engineering school with a full four-year NROTC scholarship. He does want to attend the Academy, if possible, after his freshman year. Can the letters of recommendation come from one of the teachers from junior year (who had sent in a recommendation the first time he applied)? The reason I ask is because his senior year English teacher is a horrible teacher, filled with anger at her job and taking it out on students. The only English teacher who has a decent understanding of his abilities and who will give a thoughtful response is the one from his previous year (11th grade). Will this be acceptable, I wonder? (Honestly, I am not a "helicopter parent" - the word on the street about this teacher is infamous!) Any suggestions, advice, or warnings are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
