    Should I contact more officers to get additional letters of recommendation? Should I straight up ask email or call them asking for one. I was thinking about asking for them to interview me, and later writing a letter of recommendation for me. I understand that they are very busy people and might not have the time to do so. I already did my official officer interview and received 5's in all the categories according to my recruiter and I think that's good? He didn't explain it to me very well. Sorry for the little side track but I'm more concerned about beefing up my application with well written LoR's and I just don't know any officers personally.

    **I'm super sleep deprived because of school right now, so if my post doesn't make any sense my apologies**

    NavyNOLA is correct. They aren't going to look at any recommendations other than those they requested anyway.

    I know the wait is difficult and you just keep thinking about things you could d0. Adding additional LORs or additional interviews is not going to make any impact. It may be looked on negatively by creating more work for those reviewing your application. Just relax and enjoy your senior year.

    The 5s mean you did well. If I recall correctly, I think '5' is a perfect or near perfect score for any one particular subsection on the interview.
