Hey all, So, I know that I have to get my recommendation from my 11th or 12th grade English teacher but I don't feel that my teacher this past year would give a good recommendation (not because I didn't try in his class or anything like that, he just doesn't like me). I also don't want to wait until September to ask my 12th grade teacher for a rec because I want to stay as competitive as possible. I will have my 10th grade English teacher as my teacher next year for an English elective. My question here is would it be possible to use her rec even though she'll be teaching an English elective class and not my core class? I'm really stuck between a rock and a hard place with this one and I just don't know what to do. I want to be honest and not mess anything up/disqualify myself but I also know that asking my 11th grade teacher is definitely not the right thing to do. Please help if possible? And if anyone else also been in this situation, could you please say what you chose to do? Thanks!
