Letters of Recommendation

 


Request College Recommendation Letters from Teachers


  • Ask your teachers about writing a favorable letter of recommendation for you. Typically, you only need two letters, possibly more. Do not include letters unless they are required or optional.
  • Some selective schools would like to see: one generally from a Math or Science teacher and one generally from an English, History, or Foreign Language teacher.
  • Speak with your teachers as early as possible. Many teachers receive a number of requests and will need ample time to write a letter that will benefit you. Provide each teacher with a resume and a stamped, addressed envelope for any school that is not a Common Application school. Follow up with recommenders to confirm letters of recommendation have been completed and please…make sure to thank them for their time and effort.
