how can people say that their recs r "outstanding" or "great?"
i'm not denying that they have great or outstanding recs but how do they know about how good their recs are? did they read them or somethin? i'm informed that students r not allowed to read their own recs and i'm just wondering how can they say such things..
people who wrote "great" or "outstanding" recs!!
how do u know? have u read them?
please post ur explanations of such articulations

well obviously you should have a general idea of how good your recs will be since you do know who will be writing them...

You reserve the right to read them...I read both of mine.

a teacher you likes you and who knows you as a person, if you ask them early enough, will write you a fantastic rec, and there should be a good assumption of that, the reason that some recs are better than others is that some are written by better writers who say really odd and insightful stuff about the applicant, some teachers will regurgitate a resume, others will make the applicant shine
