Letters of Recommendation
Colleges often ask for two or three recommendation letters from people who know you well. These letters should be written by someone who can describe your skills, accomplishments, and personality.
Colleges value recommendations because they:
- Reveal things about you that grades and test scores can’t
- Provide personal opinions of your character
- Show who is willing to speak on your behalf
Letters of recommendation work for you when they present you in the best possible light, showcasing your skills and abilities. Think about who would be able to write the best letter for you: teachers, employers, coaches, mentors, counselors.
If you choose to ask your counselor for a letter of recommendation, please make an appointment and being this completed form.
