Asking for Recommendations 

Professors are more than willing to provide students with references and recommendation letters for internships, jobs, study abroad applications etc. Here are a few things to keep in mind in order when making such requests:

  • It is best to ask at least one month in advance. 
  • Provide the recommender with a copy of your resume, your application essay (if applicable) or a few sentences about why you have chosen to apply to the program.
