I'm Luke from Singapore and I'm currently wading through the krazeee world of american college apps. I notice that Bard College requires a recommendation from a science/math teacher.
Now as an arts student, I don't really know if I can find a maths/science teacher who knows me well enough to give me an awesome reference. I mean, I've got great references from my literature and drama teachers. But I've spent so much more time interacting with those.
Plus, being a Singaporean (YAY SERVING THE NATION FOR 2 YEARS!), it'll be a wonder if any of them even remember me if I go back now.
