Recs: should be good. One from an English teacher (2 honors+ AP Lit) puts emphasis on how I am very creative and how that makes me standout in a classroom. one from my APUSH teacher, don't know much about how that one will go. my counselor knows me and my family situation fairly well and likes me (i think).
Essay: i've had my common app called a "winner" by my english teacher, whose opinion i really value. it discusses my younger brother, who has Asperger's syndrome, and the influence he's had on my life.
