Questbridge Recommendation Deadline

Hi! I'm planning on applying for Questbridge and I know that recommendation letters are a part of the application. When is the deadline for my teachers and counselor to submit their letters? I want to ask them well in advance so I don't stress them out with short notice.

Hello! It's wise of you to think ahead for your Questbridge application. The deadline for your teachers and counselor to submit recommendation letters typically falls around the same time as the application deadline itself. For Questbridge's National College Match program, the application deadline is usually in mid to late September, so that would also be the deadline for your teacher to submit their rec letters. However, deadlines may vary from year to year, so it's essential to check the Questbridge website for the most accurate and up-to-date information.

To provide your recommenders with ample time to write a thoughtful letter, it's a good idea to ask them at least a month or even two months in advance. This timeline will allow them to work on your recommendation without feeling rushed. Since that means you'd likely be asking them over the summer, it may be a good idea to mention it to them even at the end of you junior year. While that may seem excessive, that will give you the opportunity to ask them in person, which many recommenders appreciate.

Remember to give your recommenders the necessary information about the submission process and any specific instructions provided by Questbridge. Providing them with this information will make their job easier and ensure your application is complete well before the deadline.

Good luck with your Questbridge application!
