Sending a peer rec as an additional rec to Harvard?
My friend (a student at a state honors college), wrote me an amazing peer recommendation. Harvard asks for two teacher recommendations, a counselor rec (My Assistant Principal wrote mine.), and two other recs (One is the ED of a charity I have done a lot for my entire life, the other I am considering this peer rec). It says that a peer rec is acceptable. Originally, I had asked for it for my Dartmouth application, but now I think it is so good and shows my true personality very well. I am applying and my activities show a lot of political involvement. The peer rec mentions how we both were involved in politics from opposite sides and how I made her feel comfortable in her views rather than myself act dogmatic or close minded. Do you think choosing a peer rec is a smart idea? The person who wrote the rec is one of my best friends and she did a really incredible job.
