College Recommendation Letters
A key component of your application are the letters of recommendation written by the high school teachers of your choosing.
An important strategy for college-bound students is identifying the teachers who are willing to write strong letters of support for your college application.
Typically these will be teachers from your junior or senior core courses.
Your Goal? Identifying the best teacher or teachers (depending on how many recommendation letters you need) that can specifically discuss your core strengths and abilities.
