How to ask for a letter of recommendation:

  • Give your recommender TIME-don’t wait until the last minute!
  • CONNECT with your recommender FIRST! A brief in-person hello is best, or a phone call or email.  ASK what they need from you in order to be able to give you a good letter.
  • Give your recommender a “brag sheet” to help them remember how awesome you are! This is especially important for teachers and counselors who are writing a lot of recommendations for a lot of students.  This is a good outline to use
  • Follow up before the deadline with a SHORT and kind email
  • Thank them!  This can be swinging by their classroom or office in person, an appreciation email, or even a thank you card
