How do I do an recommendation letter?
I’m In 11th at Wayne Memorial High School and I am curious on how I can have someone recommend me to the university I want to go too

Hi @princewynter! When you are applying to colleges during your senior year, you will ask a couple of your teachers (or mentors, coaches, etc.) for letters of recommendation to talk about your successes inside and outside of school. Here is a helpful livestream that outlines how to go about asking for a letter of recommendation: https://www.collegevine.com/livestreams/4018/how-to-ask-for-a-letter-of-recommendation-with-yesh
Hope that helps!
When asking for a letter of recommendation, after I chose which teachers to ask I used this first template to write them an email asking for a letter, and then when they said yes I used this second template that had enough information to write a great letter!
Hi! If you are using the Common App (which you most likely will be) how this works is you add your person (whoever is writing the letter) as a recommender to your account. Then, (you can do this before or after they submit their letter), you can assign them to specific schools that you want their letter to go to. They only write one letter, and that is given to all of the schools. You can also change who this person is at any time after attaching them as long as you haven't formally submitted the application to the university. I hope that this helps! :)
