I’m looking to apply to top colleges this application cycle, but I’m a little bit worried about one of my teacher recommendations.
I have one teacher rec that I’m confident will be very solid (8+/10), since I was one of her favorite students, got an A+ and won awards in the subject area. She also said she was very excited to write my recommendation.
However, my second teacher recommendation I’m not nearly as confident about. Although I got along with her well, this teacher writes a lot of letters every year, and I feel like I wasn’t one of her favorite students, plus I bombed the AP test (got a 3) in the subject.
Assuming that this second recommendation letter is somewhat average, generic, and doesn’t rank me super highly compared to my peers (still fairly strong though, I got an A in the class and tutored others), will this seriously hurt my chances at competitive colleges?
