    Hey everyone!

    Currently I am serving a 1 semester term as a U.S. Senate Page, and I have spent half of my junior year at my home school, and half at the page school.
    I am having trouble figuring out which Class year teachers i should ask to fill out recommendation letters for the acadamey.

    -My Sophomore year teachers spent an entire year with me and know the pros and cons of me as a student and leader.

    -All of my junior teachers have obnly spent about 4 months with me, and each have only seen half of what i can do.

    -And i have not met my Senior year teachers yet, andi want to get my letters done preferably before school starts in the fall.

    Any Help/opinions/past experiences.
    Thanks.

    if you want to get your app done asap i think you have no choice but to go with the ones that know you best already. i went with my junior year teachers since i had yet to really start my senior year. within my 1st semester senior year my teachers got to know me quite well and wouldn't have had a problem doing my evaluation for me but it all depends on the teachers and yourself.

    I think you want to have your Junior year teachers fill it out--people can change a lot from Sophomore year to Senior year, so those teachers might not give an accurate reflection of you, and colleges know this. Even in your case, I would ask the Junior teachers who know you best.

    Since you can get 6 LOR's total (3 teachers eval., 3 LOR) you have many options.
