I'm applying to the University of Pittsburgh honors college from in-state. I really want to send in my application right now, but I don't have a teacher recommendation...I actually completed my application about a month ago but I've been ehhhh about submitting it because I didn't have that teacher rec. ANYWAY, how much would it hurt me in terms of admission if I don't have that rec? I do have an essay. It's pretty solid, I think.
Some stats if you're interested:
SAT: CR 650, M 780, W 730 (1430/2160)
GPA: 3.96 unweighted
Course rigor: lots of AP's and honors throughout my four years
ECs: MUSIC! i'm not sending pitt a music supplement though
I really want to get into Pitt (and as early as possible!), but if that missing teacher's rec is going to ruin my chances, I'll bite my tongue and wait.
