Hmm my teacher marked me 'very good' for a few things on the checklist of Stanford's teacher rec form, instead of 'top 10%' or 'one of the top few of my career'... will this hurt a lot? it was for things like sense of humor and warmth of personality :(

one of the teachers my friend asked lied for her and wrote 'top few of my career' for every single check thing :( do a lot of teachers do this? if so i fall very short...is it acceptable to only have 'excellent, top 10%' for everything, with a 'very good' here or there?

:( :( :( :(
