Requesting a Letter of Recommendation


     If you are a former student, have taken at least three classes from me or have worked in my lab for at least two quarters, I will have the information necessary to write you a letter of recommendation.  If that is your situation, please email me and request a letter.  If you make a last minute request and it is a busy time of year, I may not be able to write the letter.  I’ll let you know if I feel I can write a strong letter within your timeframe.  If I agree, you should provide me with the following information as far as possible (minimum two weeks) in advance of the application deadlines.  Please download and closely follow the instructions below.
