HOW TO GET GREAT LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION
(without hanging around with professors!)
11 to noon on Thursday December 4 in S201
Dear (name of professor),
My name is (your name). I was your student in (name of the class) in (term and year you took the course). I am applying for (name of program or scholarship) and need 3 letters of recommendation. I learned so much in your (name of course) class, Professor (name). I remember (pleasant and specific memory of the professor's class). Do you feel like you know me well enough to write a good letter of recommendation? The _____ committee (be specific about whether you need a paper letter in an envelope or if it is electronically submitted and how) and the letter would be due by (due date of letter).
If you are willing to write a letter for me, Professor (name), I would like to drop by my unofficial transcript and the essay I am using for the application. I respect that your schedule may not allow you to write for me.
Thank you for your time! (your name here)
