For Teachers & Schools
Teachers and guidance counselors often are left with the most difficult task of writing recommendations for students whom they have little to say about, or for whom they do not have a high regard, or for whom they can’t promote too highly. Yet they dont want to ruin a student’s chances by not saying anything positive or by soundig too effusive in their praise that they come off as insincere, thus jeopardizing their top student’s chances. Add to that the family, community and school administration pressure of getting all students into the best possible colleges and universities, along with the inevitable late requests for recommendations and it’s no wonder teachers and counselors are sometimes more stressed during application season than the students.
