Requesting a Letter of Recommendation
Writing letters of recommendation is an important part of my job, and I genuinely enjoy bragging about my students. If you are thinking about requesting a letter from me, please consider the following:
What grade(s) did you receive in my class(es)?
Have I worked with you on a research project?
Am I your advisor?
Have you developed a professional connection with me (even if your grades aren't great)?
If you think I am the best person to ask for a letter of recommendation, please email me at email@example.com, stop by my office hours, or schedule an appointment to request a letter. Ideally, requests should be made at least a month in advance.
After I have agreed to write a letter for you, please fill out this form. Providing me with this information will help me make a strong case for you!
