You will need letter of recommendation for the following: 

  • Scholarships

  • From Counselor/school official

  • Teachers

  • Community member ( preferably someone you completed community service with) 

  •  Private Universities (QuestBridge, Common app)

  • Educational Opportunity Program (EOP)  

 

Request letter of recommendation minimum of a month prior to your application due date, but the earlier you ask, the better. 

 

Remember that teachers who teach seniors and counselors  get a lot of requests for letters of recommendation. Not to mention, a really good, thorough letter of recommendation for college is time consuming to write. Give them a fair heads up.
