This message is geared mostly towards students already in high school that are applying out, and parents:
Have you already asked your teachers for reccomendations? If so, what did you say, and did they seem angry that you were hoping to leave your current school?
I have a problem because my teacher went to Exeter and didn't like it very much. (Crazy, i know!) Anyway, I don't know how willing she would be to fill out a recommendation for a student applying there. Also-- my (high) school has been having problems with too many kids changing schools, and I'm not looking forward to asking my principle for a rec.
I hope this doesn't sound too confusing!
I guess this is what I am trying to ask: Were your teachers generally unhappy about the fact that they have/had to fill out a recommendation for you because you are hoping to leave the school?
