Undergraduate Student Recommendations

For recommendations, you should have taken one (ideally two) courses with me, preferably receiving a grade of at least a B+. While receiving a grade lower than a B+ is not grounds for disqualification, I cannot guarantee that your recommendation will be the most positive one. If this is your case, you may want to contact other instructors for a recommendation before contacting me. Please provide at least two weeks advanced notice along with the following information:

1. Updated resume

2. Description of the specific program which you are applying to (i.e. link to website)

3. Statement of purpose (if applicable) indicating why you are interested in applying to a particular program. 

4. Information on how/where to send it. If the recommendation must be mailed, please provide me a stamped, addressed envelope.
