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.
