I am new to this site so not sure how this all works. Just got my acceptance letter to NASS, the second week, and am pumped. Can I start getting my recommendation letters in order now for the USNA application or is there a form letter in the application packet that must be used? Also are the rec letters sent by me with my application packet or are they mailed directly to the academy by the person writing them? I've read so much about trying to get rec letters from teachers during the summer so I'm trying to get a head start to avoid any problems. Also what does DQ'd mean?
