You will need letter of recommendation for the following:
From Counselor/school official
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.
