Princeton asks for 2 teacher references and then there is the optional reference for like a coach/religious leader/music teacher what not. If i wanted the third/optional reference to be another teacher, do i use the optional reference letter? or another one of the 2 teacher reference letters cuz they are different...or should i just only have 2 teacher references? help please :-D

The optional reference should emphasize another side of the applicant. It should not focus on the applicant's academics and schoolwork.

I really want to do 3 teachers (My French teacher has had me since frosh year, but my counselor tells me that 2 senior year teachers I have give awesome recs, so they come first). Are u sure that it is bad to have a third teacher?
If it is bad, would a guidance counselor work?

I just called the Princeton admissions office, and the person I talked to (she wasn't a secretary) said that you are welcome to use a 3rd teacher rec, and to do it using the same teacher rec form as the others. Just white out the number on the form and put 3 instead.

There are things like "top few in my career", "excellent" all the way down to "below avg" that the teachers have to check off. However, my concern is that will they consider the years that the teacher has been teaching into consideration? For eg, i can give it to a teacher who has taught over 30 years or one who taught only 5 years. i am sure that i will be "top few encountered in career" for most of the checklists for the teacher who has been teaching for 5 years and mostly "excellent" with a few "top few in my career" for the teacher who has taught for over 30 years. Does is matter whom i give the forms to?
I am confident that they will both give me 'top few encountered in career' for my academic and extracurrilar involvement. Factors such as sense of humor is a bit harder to get "Top few encountered in career."
