Guidance Counselor sending teacher recs

Peachpie9Peachpie9 45 replies22 threads Junior Member
Daughter's school uses Naviance for teacher rec letters. My question is does the student tell the guidance counselor how many rec letters each school needs? What is in Common App is often vague, it will say something like 3 optional teacher recs, but when you look on the school's website or from the info session they are really only wanted 1 guid letter and 1 teacher rec, etc You have to go digging for this info and I can't see our guidance counselor having the time to dig up this info for each student's many schools they are applying to. My daughter already met with her guidance counselor about applications who said nothing about this so my daughter says mom you are worrying too much she'll know what to do. What has been your experience? Should this pesky mom just email the guidance counselor herself? Thanks!
