Tip of the week: Letters of Recommendation
– Receiving a great letter of recommendation requires fostering a relationship with the letter writer. To do this, try to meet up and talk face to face at least once every 3-6 months. Maintaining contact is key.
– If you had a professor that you liked a lot and did very well in the class, but haven’t spoken to them in a while (more than 6 months), send them an email and attach your picture to it. The picture will help to jog their memory of who you are. Then, ask to meet up with them!
– Did you have a closer relationship with your TA than your professor? Ask your TA to write a small blurb about you and then give that to the professor so he/she can quote your TA or get a better idea of who you are. Similarly, if your PI (principal investigator) in a lab is hands-off, then you can ask the graduate student and the PI to write the letter together.
