If you have already asked me to write your letter of recommendation, please fill out the following questions and email your responses to me.
I want Mrs. Young to write me a letter of recommendation for college. When can I ask her? How should I ask her? Mrs. Young begins accepting requests for college letters AFTER Spring Break. Please ask her privately and not in front of other students.
Why does Mrs. Young place a cap on the number of letters she writes for both college and summer programs? Letters of Recommendation take time and Mrs. Young writes letters because she cares about her students, not because she is required to. She limits the number of letters she writes to ensure the quality of the letters she has already agreed to.
Who gets first priority when it comes to letters of recommendation? My TAs have a guaranteed spot on my list for letters of recommendation.
Why will Mrs. Young only write letters that are kept private or ask you to waive your rights to view your letter? Firstly, institutions like private letters because it ensures that the student had no influence on what the teacher decided to put in the letter. Secondly, each student is different and naturally what Mrs. Young writes will vary from student from student. She does not want students comparing letters.
What is required of me as a student in order for me to ask Mrs. Young for a letter of recommendation? If you are an AP Calc AB student, you must plan to or have taken and passed the AP Calc AB exam. This is the only requirement, but here are some qualities that makes it easier for Mrs. Young to write your letter: -Demonstration of growth and willingness to challenge yourself and learn -Perseverance -Eagerness to collaborate with peers
