I understand that colleges want core/academic teachers from our junior or senior year to write our recs.
I am a junior. I am taking AP Computer Science and AP Bio this year. I took AP physics and AP Calc BC in my sophomore year.
1) My AP Cal teacher (taught me one semester in my sophomore year, then retired) will write a very good rec for me. But if I want to major in engineering, is it better to pick a science teacher over a math teacher to write my rec?
2) Is computer science considered a core science subject? Its an elective in my school though. Will I look bad if I pick my computer science teacher, instead of my bio teacher, to write my rec in science subject?
a) My CS teacher probably likes me the best in the class;
b) My bio teacher doesnt seem to be the kind of person who would write an enthusiastic rec for anyone.(Just his personality)
3) Otherwise, I will have to go to my teachers from my sophomore year, bad idea? I dont know about senior year yet.
