Students seeking a recommendation letter must notify the teacher they wish to write the letter. Be sure this teacher knows you! Provide the teacher with a resume of your activities and accomplishments so the letter can show who you really are and not just your GPA and rank. If you need help, use the Brag Sheet (located on this page) to provide the person writing your letter of recommendation information to make the letter appealing to colleges and scholarship committees.
Be sure to give the teacher at least TWO weeks notice. Some teachers may not be able to accommodate last minute requests.
Students applying to colleges using the Common App will automatically have their letters sent in with their application.
Don't forget to follow up with a thank you note. Cards are available in the College and Career Center.
