Letters of Recommendation
Recommendation letters are strongly recommended but are not required. It can be helpful in our admissions review to know more about you from the viewpoint of a counselor or teacher who can attest to your academic ability. Letters could also come from an employer, coach, research mentor, or community leader. Remember that quality is better than quantity and a total of two is sufficient.
