Fundamentals of Letters of Recommendation for College
Going through the list of requirements for college, you might be stressed by the letter of recommendation component. Which teachers should you ask? What’s the best way to ask them? What do strong letters even look like? Will the teachers you ask write great ones on your behalf? Since recommendation letters are the one component of your application you don’t write, they show a different perspective and provide admissions officers a more objective viewpoint regarding what you’re like to have in the classroom.

To guide you through this application component, I’ve outlined exactly what letters of recommendation are, who to ask, how to go about asking them, and what you’re looking for in an ideal recommendation letter.
