Caution: I am creating this post NOT to start a frenzy about LOAs and NOT to have people panic about not getting one. I am offering this in the spirit of sharing up-to-date information to the rest of the forum. My DS told me this morning that an acquaintance of his at our church, who is a senior and had gone to SLE, just received a USMA LOA. Interesting facts: -The LOA recipient is not a recruited athlete. -The LOA recipient is male. -The LOA recipient hasn’t even finished his application or essays. He has only submitted his SAT scores (don't know the scores) and math teacher recommendation. -He passed CFA at SLE. -He hasn’t even started his DoDMERB. FYSA (For your situational awareness).
