Letter of Recs

<p>I'm getting a recommendation from my chemistry and teacher but I was wondering that instead of getting it from another teacher if it would be better to get a recommendation from my coach who i have been with for 4 years to show a different perspective of me rather than the same old stuff teachers say.</p>

<p>ask your teachers if they will write a good reccomendation...they are usually cool about it if they like you.</p>

<p>Depends on what a certain college asks for. They may want 2 academic teacher recommendations, in which case your coach would not work. But, if a school allows extracurricular recommendations, then the coach may be a good idea because he/she has seen your growth over the span of 4 years, and like you said, can show a different perspective.</p>
