My son has submitted an application through Apply Texas and linked his SRAR this evening. This is the first time we are applying to A&M, so not sure of the process. Could someone please help me with the following questions if possible?
1. He attends a non ranking high school and has been in a double block sport since freshmen year. While entering course info in SRAR, he did not enter his sport for Freshman thru' Junior years since Varsity sport was the only option available and he was not in varsity other years. He has entered varsity sport for his senior year schedule. Does it matter that he didn't enter the sport for other years? I feel it should be ok since sport is not going to be included while computing the rank and it is too late now, but would like to know for my knowledge.
2. He want to submit a teacher recommendation. I see in howdy that documents can be uploaded, but is there a way to request teacher recommendation through AIS or Howdy portal? I see an option for counselor recommendation, but not for teacher. I am not sure if teachers would be comfortable sending the rec letter to kids for them to upload by themselves. I am aware that teachers can email the rec letter, but want to see if there is an easier option for them to upload the document by themselves. I know UT has an option to request through their portal, wanted to see if A&M has something similar.
