Who should I have write letters of recommendation for me?
Many scholarship applications, and some college applications, require letters of
recommendation. For many scholarships, you will need at least two, if not three
letters. Generally speaking, a good rule of thumb is to get a letter from your high
school counselor and two letters from teachers who can speak highly of you or
one teacher and an employer, coach, or community service supervisor. For certain
college applications, you will be required to have a letter of recommendation from
an English teacher and a math or science teacher... always pay close attention to the
specifics of every college and scholarship application.
