COLLEGE RECOMMENDATION LETTERS STEP ONE You should find out what the letter of recommendation is supposed to do. Is it the deciding factor of the application or only to enhance the application?
COLLEGE RECOMMENDATION LETTERS STEP TWO You should always talk to the recommender. You should not be afraid to ask the teacher or faculty member: Do you have anything positive to say about me? Can I get a rough draft of what you are writing?
COLLEGE RECOMMENDATION LETTERS STEP THREE If the teacher will not talk to you about your recommendation dont hesitate to ask someone else. Letters stay in your files at the institutions you apply to. To avoid getting a flawed letter of reference to your colleges or universities of choice, you need to be aware of what is written.
COLLEGE RECOMMENDATION LETTERS STEP FOUR Do not ask a person for a letter of recommendation just because of their title or prestige !!!!!!!! Make sure you know the teacher or faculty member and make sure they know you!!!!!
