LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION
I will write students a letter of recommendation for graduate or law school if they received an A- or better on every written assignment they completed in one or more of my courses. I strongly recommend that students seek letters from the courses where they performed the best, and from professors they know the best. So, if you received an A- as your final grade in any of my classes, then I should not be your first choice since my letter will not be as strong. In rare situations, I will write letters for students who receive B+ or lower in one of my courses as long as I personally know the student and feel comfortable vouching for their ability to succeed in graduate school.
If I agree to write for you, please send me the following:
Information about the Program(s)
List of institutions/programs you are applying to and corresponding application deadlines
Links to submit my letter for each institution (usually, it's sent automatically from the application system)
A brief description of the degree you are pursuing
Information about You
Which class you took with me in which term (e.g. pol 123, fall 2022)
Draft of your personal statement. Make sure to explain why you want to go to grad school and why you think you're a good fit for the program
An unofficial transcript or list of relevant courses and grades
If you are applying for a PhD program: your best research/term paper and/or honors thesis
Note: you must waive your right to view any letter that I write for you. This is in your interest. If you do not waive your right to view your recommendation letter(s), they will likely carry less weight with admissions committees. Moreover, I will not agree to write you a letter unless it is favorable to your application.
