I would prefer to have a history and an English teacher write me recommendations for two of the schools I'm applying to (they don't seem to require a math/science rec). Should I get a math/sci. rec to be less one-dimensional? I have a weaker SAT math score (650), any help? Thank you!

Which schools are you applying to?
You know a rec. from an english teacher counts a lot so you better get one, the same goes for maths.

I think a history and an english is fine. I'm getting from english and spanish.

Mystiman, do recs from certain subjects really mean more than others? Cause you said... "you know a rec. from an english teacher counts a lot"... just wondering. I got one from Bio and one from English.

"Mystiman, do recs from certain subjects really mean more than others? "

NO.
As long as it's from a main subject, not an elective sort of thing.

Really?
I am having my newspaper teacher/advisor do one because that's what I'm interested in and I'm one of the best writers on the paper. I'm applying to Yale so do you really think having an English teacher is better (in addition to my history teacher)
