Helpful Hints:
        ◇ Don’t procrastinate! Request letters of recommendations at least 2 weeks prior to when you need them.
           For January and February college application deadlines, please return this form to your teacher and
           counselor no later than the first week of December (be mindful of winter break!).

       ◇ Be as detailed as possible. Your teachers and counselors know you, but they may not know some
         important details about you that may be significant to colleges and scholarship committees.

       ◇ If your teacher or counselor would like to know more about how you perform in the classroom, please give 2
         or 3 teachers a Student Information Sheet.

       ◇ Keep copies of this Brag Sheet for future use.
