I'm still a sophomore, but I'm sorta curious about teacher/counselor recommendations...
How many do you need? or how many are you allowed to have?

    the University of California's do not require any recommendation at all, there are just too many applicants so they don't have time to read through everyone of them ...

    most colleges require two from teachers and one from a counselor... though some let you send 3-4 .. but two are required at most colleges.

    Every college has a list of application requirements on its website, so you can check out particular schools individually. Their websites are also helpful because they'll give you a thumbnail view of what they are looking for in a student - how many years of math, what GPA, etc.

    Two from teachers, one from counselor. One extra-only if you wish. :)
