Who should I ask for letters of recommendation?

For a multitude of #scholarships, I have been asked to provide letters of #recommendation and I am at a loss for who I should ask. I am a wrestler and pole vaulter but I have little faith in my coaches ability to draw up a well-written letter that would help my case. I am not involved in any clubs or groups in my school other than Yearbook. #academic-advising #college-applications #references #career-development

Can I ask someone who isn't my teacher for a recommendation?

I'm currently interning within a research program. Just curious if I can ask the professor who accepted me for a college recommendation, or if they're typically only written by one's teachers. #college #teaching #teacher #professor #college-bound #recommendation

As an aspiring leader and entrepreneur, what are three books I must read?

I am 19 years old at university. This summer I've immersed myself in a variety of texts ranging from philosophy to leadership advice. I still am, however, looking for that one book to spark a certain inspiration. If you have any book recommendations, I would love to hear it. #entrepreneurship #leadership #philosophy #books #reading #recommendation

How to request a recommendation from someone who has previously written one for you?

As a college student, I've had several professors write me recommendations and agree to be my references. In the future, when I'm applying to something new and need a recommendation or reference, how do I go about asking them again? Should it be expected that they will accept, or would it vary depending on their current situation? Would it be appropriate to ask to catch up over coffee and make the request at the end? #professor #recommendation #referrals

How important is it to maintain a good relationship with your professors?

Can I submit more recommendation letters than what is specified on a college's website?

In order to apply to a summer program, I required a letter of recommendation from a teacher which I obtained from a Creative Writing teacher. After being accepted in the program, I read the letter and was absolutely astonished by how positively she viewed me despite a lack of strong connection. Throughout the school year, my bond with my other English teacher grew, and I became positive that I wanted her to write me a letter of recommendation for college. I asked her, and she gladly accepted. By that time my list of colleges was gaining substance, and I had found a few to which I definitively wanted to apply. Unfortunately, these colleges required or strongly suggested one letter of recommendation from a humanities teacher and one from a science teacher. I am torn between my two humanities teachers, one whose letter is absolutely astounding but with whom I have little connection, and one with whom I have very strong connection but whose letter would not likely surpass that of my other teacher. So: can I submit both, perhaps including one as supplementary material? Any advice given to help resolve this dilemma would be greatly appreciated. Thank-you. #college #teaching #college-major #recommendation #education #higher-education

How does a recommendation letter work for scholarships?

This may be a little obvious answer but it might not be for many people. I am very shy at times. I don't like to ask teachers or people I know to write about me. I have avoided many scholarships in the past because there are recommendation letters needed. I was wondering if there is a way you can ask people. How do you know if someone is a good person to ask for one? Can you reuse your past recommendation letters for multiple scholarships? #scholarships #recommendation
