I've put together the transcript, school profile, and a counselor letter for my daughter's applications, but am not sure if I should include the letter in all the applications. She's applying to seven schools, and has two other recommenders available-- her history professor and the religious education director at church, with the sensei at the dojo (who has known her for 10 years) as a third if needed. There is a possibility she could ask one of her other community college professors for a recommendation as well, probably the English professor who had her for the two intro writing courses last year.
Lenoir Rhyne does not require recommendations for admission and is unclear on the website about whether they are needed for scholarships.
Catawba recommends one from core teacher or counselor for admission, for homeschoolers says "teacher, tutor, or community member."
UNC-Wilmington is unclear, but their section for counselors seems to indicate that one is expected.
UNC-Greensboro says letters of recommendation are encouraged--"Anything that aids in determining a student's probability of success at UNCG is always worth including in the application."
UNC-Charlotte says essays and letters of recommendation are not required for admission. They do require nomination from a teacher/professor for their top scholarship and her history professor is doing that. Emails are then sent to recommenders, which won't include me. Their other big scholarship needs two academic recommendations.
Appalachian State doesn't require letters of recommendation for admission, but they do want a resume and personal statement from homeschoolers. Scholarship application requires two letters of recommendation, but we won't know if there are specific sources requested until they open the application for her (admissions material sent in already).
Roanoke recommends one letter of recommendation.
So, would you send the counselor letter of recommendation to any or all, or wait to see if the school requests it?
