Hi, I'm currently a junior and am applying to this, but I have a question. It says that we need a letter of recommendation from a community member, can that also be from a teacher or coach?

Hi Alo17! Welcome to Soy.

I would assume that you already have the first letter of recommendation from an educator at your school like a counselor, principal or teacher?

The reason they want you to have a community member recommendation is to see how much you've invested in your own community already on your own. Is your coach a school coach? If you don't know anyone in the community that could write you a great letter of rec, then I would suggest to just have another educator/coach recommendation. But I do want to stress that you should REALLY try to find someone outside of the school to write you a letter of rec.

Oh okay thank you! I will try to find someone in my community.
What would you say is the most important part of the application?

* Essay #3 - Hypothetical Essay
* School and Community Activities
* Recommender Forms & Letters of Recommendation
* Overall Presentation
If you look at this post of mine from before, they score on this scale.

The essays are definitely the most important of the application.
