CHS Counselor Letter of Recommendation Requests
Required for Common Application/College School Report
Read these instructions carefully. Please email your counselor if you have questions after reading all instructions.
Most colleges DO NOT require a letter of recommendation. But if you are applying to a Common App school, then you will probably want your counselor to write a letter. Please read your applications carefully and follow the instructions just as the colleges have requested. Make sure you meet all the deadlines. Please allow counselors plenty of time to complete the process (at least three weeks!)
Also, if a school or scholarship asks for a recommendation letter and doesn't specify that it must come directly from your counselor, then in most situations you want to ask a teacher for your letter. Typically you want to ask a person that knows you well and interacts with you on a daily basis.
