Letters of Recommendation

First, be sure you need a letter of recommendation before you have someone write one as it is not always required.  You MAY need a letter if:

If you are applying to a private school (Common Apps require it)
If you do not meet admission requirements
If you have a low ACT or SAT score
If you have a low GPA (grade point average)

DO’S AND DON’TS


DO allow individuals at least two weeks to prepare your letter.  Ample time is needed to complete your letter.  You will not want anyone to rush through something this important!

DO ask in person!

DO write a thank you note for doing this. Individuals have the right to refuse your request.

DON’T expect anyone to write a letter for you without filling out Personal Data Form.

DON’T expect anyone to write a letter for you without sufficient notice!
