To what address should Letters of Recommendation from teachers be sent for USNA application?
I'm sure to the USNA admissions office.
However, these have been for many admission seasons now, requested and normally submitted on line, I believe.
As WP says, letters from your 11 grade Math and English teachers (required) are done online. You provide the NA with an email address and the NA sends them (the teachers) a log in to submit the recommendations. Your responsibility is to make sure the addresses are correct, that those teachers actually check them, and that they were able to log in. If they can't - it becomes your responsibility to contact the NA and have them resend the log in notice.
Do this as early as possible as teachers tend to get busy writting recommendations as application dealiines approach.
not teachers - my bad
The letters of recommendation are not from teachers (yes, they are online). Instead they are from clergy, employer, etc. Need to know where to send them.
When you are doing the app, follow the directions given. send nothing more and nothing less. so, you probably wont be sending those to usna unless they changed the application. for moc, its different for everyone so read carefully and figure out what they want. sending extra letters of recommendation or letters of recommendation from sources they don't request is, well, not recommended.
That isn't necessarily true.
If you believe the letters of recommendation will provide additional (different) information from your application that would explain who you are (character, leadership skills, ethics, etc.) then another one or two won't hurt. However, the key is that it needs to be another data point for Admissions. For example, if you were really religious and did a lot of events/activities (in which you demonstrated some leadership/organizational skills) with your faith, a letter from the religious leader (who best knew you) might help bolster your application and give Admissions a different viewpoint of who you are. Once again, sending numerous extra letters is probably not a good idea (one or two is probably the right number).
Edit: Clergy members and employers are probably not bad choices if they meet the above criteria.
I'm pretty sure my daughter's application said NOT to send additional letters of recommendation than what was requested on the on line app, and that they would not be considered.
Not only have BGOs been saying up to two additional letters might be considered, but at this year's BGO summer training, that question was specifically addressed. As I and others BGOs have previously stated, if the information in the additional letters do not shed any additional light on the candidate, they are essentially useless.
