I know I've seen a thread on this, but I've done multiple searches and just can't find it. Two of the colleges to which Son is applying "strongly recommend" parent recommendation letters. How are these helpful? Wouldn't every parent gush about his or her child? Are they looking for specific traits that are mentioned to see if the student would be a good fit? Any guidance you can give would be greatly appreciated.
