Who to Select?

A student that is looking to have someone else write a recommendation for them should ask themselves, “who have I been closer to than any other teacher, coach or faculty member at my school?”. What schools are looking for in the recommendation letter is to get a glimpse of the student’s personality when making the judgment of whether or not to allow the applicant into their school. Therefore, it is best to select someone who can write the most personal of recommendations about the student.
