Peer Recommendation

A peer recommendation is strongly encouraged for us to get a better understanding of your interests and character from a different perspective.

A peer recommendation is a written statement of support for the applicant’s candidacy, completed by anyone the applicant considers a peer. It should not be someone who is in a supervisory or oversight role in the applicant’s life. A few examples are a classmate or teammate; brother, sister, or cousin; a co-worker; a friend met at summer school or summer camp; lab or debate partner.

\The peer recommendation is located within the "Other Recommendation" section of the Common Application (Check out this PDF on Inviting & Assigning a Peer Recommender on the Common Application) and the "General Recommendation" section of the Coalition Application
