Season 1, Episode 5: Teacher Recommendation Letters

In this podcast, our counselors delve into teacher recommendation letters.

Teacher recommendations are required for most schools on the Common Application and can be requested by schools like UCBerkeley after applying to them. Teacher recommendations provide insight to admissions on your characteristics, personality traits, and your abilities beyond just an academic student in the classroom. Most colleges will require 2 recommendation letters, and some will allow you to have 1 or 2 more supplemental recommendation letters.

  • When and how do I ask for recommendation letters?
  • Should I get a rec from a teacher I got a B in?

  • Who do I need to get recommendations from? 
  • What’s the deal with supplemental letters?
