<p>can recs to wustl be from any grade? can i use a 9th grade teacher?</p>

<p>If at all possible, you should try to get a more recent teacher to do your recommendation. Junior year preferably. They would better reflect the student you are now, not 2 -3 years ago. Since many colleges distinguish the 10 -12 GPA from the 9 - 12 GPA, it would be my guess that more consideration is given to your more recent work.</p>
