Letters of Recommendation


I am pleased to write you a letter of recommendation. Please follow these guidelines:

1. Make your request in a timely manner.  I cannot promise to meet deadlines for requests made under 14 days.

2. Provide me with an unofficial transcript, a resume, your writing samples for the application, and a summary of your assignments for my class.

3. Send me a reminder 10 days and 3 days before the application is due.

4. Please find out if the request is for a letter or a form.

5. Please update me about the status of your application.

**Please note that my goal is to write you a strong letter. I cannot do this if you provide minimal or vague information about your interests, activities outside of the classroom, or do not remember the assignments you completed for my class.
