Ok, so I need 2 recommendation letters for most of the colleges that I am applying to. Most schools want "academic teachers." My best subject is math, so I'll have my math teacher do one, but then I want my debate coach to do my other one. He knows me way better than any of my other teachers, and will write me an amazing letter. He has read my papers, and I've been in his debate class 3 times. Should I send in an additional academic teacher? I feel like it really won't add anything, but I don't want to be penalized for only having one real academic teacher.2 replies
