Recommendation Letters!

<p>What would you say is the general rule of how many rec letters to send to college? I know depending on which college you apply to, the number varies. As of right now, I have 3 letters in the works (including my guidance counselor letter, the other two are from teachers.)
magic number?</p>

<p>Each college has its own requirements. You’ll have to read through your apps for each requirement. Generally, two teacher recs and one GC rec are the norm for the Ivies.</p>

<p>2 teachers
1 guidance counselor.</p>

<p>Having 3 in the works is great. I don’t believe any school requires more than the above. Some, like Duke, say that you can have another one from a non-academic source, but that’s easy to get.</p>
