LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION PROCESS

It is the student's responsibility to organize these requests and get them to counselors and teachers in a timely manner.  NOT ALL SCHOOLS REQUIRE A LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION, know your application requirements BEFORE requesting a letter.

Be considerate of your writers time, many staff members are asked to write multiple letters and each letter is personalized.
