Recommend Me for a Cookie

Since I missed the whole month of January pretty much, blog wise, I’m posting a bunch of consecutive TCC posts. I have to get caught up if I’m ever going to fit in all those campus posts!
So, recommendations. Choose the teacher(s) who you think know you best, but be logical about it. Don’t choose a teacher if you know they’re a flake. I don’t have any personal experience with this, but one of my friends had to harass a teacher for two months before she finally got around to sending in her letter of rec.
That’s the other thing. Don’t be afraid to bother your teacher. Give them at least a week’s notification, but don’t be afraid to remind them of their deadline. Don’t be one of those people who asks for a letter two days before it’s due. Your teacher won’t appreciate it.
