When to ask for letters of recommendation if applying EA/ED?

<p>If you're applying early decision or early action and the school asks for letter of recommendation, when is the best time to ask your teachers? Right before junior year ends or right when senior year starts?</p>

<p>Try to make initial contact by the end of semester. Then follow up again once school resumes.</p>

<p>Some teachers limit the amount of students they’ll write letters for, simply because some teachers get asked a lott and it can be a good amount of work to write a good letter. It always helps to be first in line, so ask before school gets out.</p>
