Supplemental College Recommendations

<p>Hi everyone,</p>

<p>Quick question regarding supplemental recommendations.</p>

<p>I have two teachers and my counselor all writing via the Common App. However, some colleges say that you can send in optional letters (i.e. extracurricular adviser, etc).</p>

<p>I wanted to do this, but I was wondering how to do it I just mail it in or is there a website with specific instructions (such as length, identification info required, etc) to do so? </p>

<p>I looked on all of the colleges' websites and couldn't find anything specific.</p>

<p>Please keep these colleges in mind when discussing:
Claremont McKenna

<p>Thanks so much for your help!</p>

<p>-Just another anxious, confused high school senior...</p>

<p>My son has only one school using the common app. The school requests a GC rec and one core teacher. The common app form for teacher rec states it must be a core teacher. My son has his GC rec, an English teacher, a chem instructor (who breaks kids down and if you survive she likes you and will offer the rec…he’d never thought to ask. He wasn’t turning it down!), and an IT teacher- not core but had also been his EC coach who has taken him to two world championships. She knows him better than any teacher in the school. </p>

<p>He asked his GC how to handle this. One school he really wanted all of them for scholarship consideration. The GC advised to send all recs to all the schoos applying to, including the the one using the common app. She has a great deal of experience with this school as it’s in state. She advised sending all recs to all schools. They have the choice to read them or not.</p>
