Counselor Recs Vs. Teacher Recs.

<p>Do colleges tend to place more weight on the secondary school report (counselor rec)?</p>

<p>I'm pretty sure teacher recs. I went to a BU reception and they told us that the counselor rec is just to get information on your school while the teacher rec is where they get to know you.</p>

<p>It depends, normally the counsellor doesn't really konw the students well, hence his/her rec is less important. but if you had a lot of personal interaction with your counsellor (like in my case.... i'm an international and my principal is filling out the couselor rec forms - he's almost like a mentor to me) and he/she mentions this in the rec, it will be as important as the teacher recs i imagine.</p>
