My DS Calculus teacher who also was his 11th grade math teacher, has a policy of only witting letters of rec (or in this case the online rec) once the year is several month in. He said in his experience he has done them earlier only to see student slack off and get senoritas. Although he said he doesn't think that would be the case with my ds, he is sticking to his policy and wont write one until late fall. In addition he is a hardass teacher who doesn't believe anyone deserves 10's on a 1-10 scale. I am confident he will give him a good rec but may not be over the top like most because just not his nature. Would say my DS would probably be his highest recommendation but he is just not the type to be over the top and is kind of cold. Could this affect his chances? How much are these rec weighted? His other rec is outstanding- even has a fantastic letter from a close family friend who is a 2 star AF General. My question is... could my DS get a LOA without 1 teacher rec? He has EVERYTHING else completed and has been busting his tush to do that all summer to at least be considered early only to have this hold up which is out of his control. FRUSTRATING!!! I know appointment is the goal but curious if he would be considered at all for a LOA with 1 rec missing? Also posted this earlier with no response so throwing it out there again..Wondering if there is a confirmed date for when the first admissions board meets? I have read Aug 26, Sept 1...?? Any BGO's out there in with inside scoop? Also wondering the status on CVW this fall? Will they still be offering this program and are there dates scheduled?
