Letters of recommendation.
Hello, I am a senior and my school has about 4000 kids in it and a graduating class of at least 1100 students. I understand that MIT requires a recommendation from a guidance counselor, but in a school with such a large graduating class it was hard to form any sort of relationship with her. I'm afraid that if I ask her to write me a recommendation its going to be bland, generic, and overall not a good representative of my personality and drive. I would much rather ask an A.P that knows me a little better to write me a recommendation, but I'm not sure if MIT will accept that. I really want to come off as a unique individual rather than just another hard working student. What should i do??
