I have a few questions about the process of getting a letter of recommendation
1) For recommendations, I'm supposed to get one from the counselor. However, my counselor doesn't really know me... I've only spoken to him a few times regarding my courses. Since he'll already have my grades, should I just submit a list of my extracurricular activities and achievements to him? These letters aren't limited to just school teachers/ admins, right?
2) If you want to apply to say, ten different schools, do you have each of the teachers make ten copies? Please describe the process to me, since I really have no idea what's supposed to happen. I've looked around in the other threads, and there's something about a common app?
3) From what I understand, I'm supposed to prepare the envelopes for the teachers, is that all I have to give them? The format of the letter doesn't change no matter what college I apply to, correct?
