So you want a recommendation…

I think it’s great that you want a recommendation. I’m flattered that you think enough of our relationship that you would ask me for one.

A couple things…

 

  1. There are “A” recommendations, “B” recommendations and “C” recommendations. These have very little to do with your grade and very much to do with the effort you gave in class. If you’re unsure of what kind of recommendation you’d get from me, just ask.
  2. Recommendations take a bunch of time to write and we both want to save time, right? So let’s not have a back and forth over email where I’m asking for stuff. I’ve put together a form that asks for the information I need to write the letter. If  you don’t mind taking a few minutes to fill it out, it’d make my life — and your recommendation — a lot easier.
