I received glowing recommendations for college applications and scholarships which I believe helped me win several scholarships! To get good recommendations I did several things. First, I asked teachers who knew me well and whose classes I excelled in. Second, I provided each teacher with a resume of sorts that outlined my achievements, activities, work and volunteer experience. I also gave them several weeks to write the letter before it would be due.
