Chalk Talk: Recommendations
Most colleges require 1-3 recommendations for applicants, written by teachers the student has had during either their junior or senior year. These recommendations give specific insight into the student’s work ethic, attitude, intelligence, and various other essential qualities. They allow college admissions officers to get a true feel for the student and the impression they make. The fact that they are written by teachers with first-hand experience with the applicant carries a lot of weight, because the admissions committee is looking to find out how the student behaves in class. These recommendations are private, which means students never see them. Colleges feel that this privacy gives the teachers the freedom to be honest. Of course, a recommendation that seems unbalanced, either glowingly positive when nothing else in the application packet indicates this, or fiercely negative in a way that could come off as unprofessional, are usually ignored.
