Resumes & Letters of Rec

Update your resume (brag sheet), edit your essay, and request letters of recommendation.


* Update Resume – continue to update your academic resume


* Work on College Essays – proofread!


* Essay Writing Tips - Essay prompts can vary by college



Not all colleges require recommendation letters from teachers and/or counselors.  However, if you need one, be sure you give your recommender (teacher and/or counselor) your most updated academic resume or “brag sheet” to complete the recommendation.

ALWAYS allow 2 weeks for any Letter of Recommendation requests.

DO NOT ask for Letters of recommendation during a holiday break.


Keep track of deadlines!
