It is my pleasure to write letters of recommendation for students who impress me with their work in the classroom or laboratory.
- Please contact me with any requests for recommendation letters at least 2 weeks before the letter is due.
- Prepare a packet with any forms required for the recommendation, current copies of your resume and academic transcript, a copy of your personal statement (if you have one), and a summary of the program names/addresses/deadlines.
- Please also complete this form to help me to write a more detailed letter for you.
- Finally, I ask that you waive your right to review the letter of recommendation - I will decline to write letters if you choose not to waive that right. The reason for this request is that I want the recipient to feel completely confident that the letter is a candid assessment of your qualifications, and I prefer not to invest time on a letter that will not be taken seriously.
