RECOMMENDATION LETTER REQUESTS

If you are/were a student in any of these classes and would like a recommendation letter from me, please consider these guidelines:

You want to ensure that a potential recommender is willing to provide you not only with a letter, but with a strong one. So you should request letters from faculty with whom you have successfully completed coursework of a very high caliber. Beyond that general rule, students who seek a letter of recommendation must follow these guidelines:

  • Due to the high volume of requests, the “11th-hour” nature of many requests, and the need to devote the necessary amount of attention to recommendations, make your request with at least 30 days lead time. This ensures that letters are properly crafted.  I will consider late requests, but I cannot guarantee that the letter will be available in time, irrespective of deadlines.
  • A request for a letter should be made in person, during office hours, whenever possible, to allow for effective collaboration on the goals and purpose of the letter.
  • I prefer to email letter(s) directly to the requesting agency or program, so make sure they or you have sent me the email/link for electronic recommendations.
  • The student must provide the following materials to enable me to write the letter:
Clearly identified deadline for the sending of the letter
A photocopy (unofficial) of your transcript
A draft of the personal essay that you are submitting with the letter
All relevant evaluation forms filled out with both the student’s information
