Letters of Recommendation

What letters of recommendation are required?

We ask for a letter from your guidance counselor, college adviser or another school official to accompany the School Report, and letters from two teachers who have taught you in academic subjects.  Learn more about what to include in your admission application.

Does it help to have extra letters of recommendation?

We believe that the required teacher and guidance counselor references give us much of the information we need to make thoughtful, well-informed decisions. Additional letters are only helpful if the person writing the recommendation knows the candidate well and can provide new, detailed information.
