I'm worried about a potential problem with a recommendation. I was a junior in a calc BC class with mostly seniors, and I did well (A's both semesters, 5 on the AP). She told me that I was good at math on several occasions. However, I didn't think I was good at math, and I told her this. I'm mostly an English person.
I'm applying as a Chemistry major to top schools, and I'm worried that she will mention "he's good at math, but he doesn't think so." This would reflect poorly on my confidence, even though I'm more comfortable with math now.
