And IIRC, Kirk-Prime served on the Republic as an ensign, didn't he? Where does the "graduated as a lieutenant" come from?
Captain Garrovick of the Farragut was Kirk's commanding officer "from the day [he] left the Academy." Kirk was a Lieutenant on the Farragut (when the cloud creature killed half the crew).

As for the Republic, it is entirely possible that Kirk took a cadet cruise on that ship and was given the rank of Ensign for that purpose.
