Chalk Talk: Asking for Letters of Recommendations
Most colleges want from one to three recommendations, which means a good rule of thumb is to ask for two. One of the toughest questions to consider when applying to college is who to ask for a recommendation. Of course, a teacher of a subject that falls in line with the student’s future major is a no-brainer. A student applying with an undecided major might be especially unsure. A general rule of thumb for unsure students is to ask one teacher from a humanities class and one from a math or science class. That way, the college application committee can get insight into the applicant’s writing ability and creativity from the humanities teacher, and problem solving, class performance, and work ethic, among other things, from the other teacher.
