This page contains instructions for students who would like me to write recommendation letters for them.
Please read this before deciding whether to ask me for a letter.
If I know you as a student I will usually be happy to write
a letter of recommendation for you. BUT, I can only write
about what I know. For example,
Supplementary Information for one-off recommendations
If this is for a one-off application, e.g., a scholarship, please specify in your cover email the details of the application, e.g.,
- Name of scholarship
- Submission deadline
- URL of the scholarship site
- Any special submission instructions, e.g., format, details to be included
Supplementary Information for Graduate School recommendations
If this is for graduate school applications please also include a list of ALL of the programs to which you are applying, sorted by submission deadline. Each program should include the following information
- Name of program e.g., PhD in Computer Science, PhD in Software Engineering, M.A. in Financial Engineering
- University, e.g., Stanford, University of Washington, UCLA
- Submission Deadline: e.g., December 5, 2017
Whenever you update the list, e.g., adding or inserting an entry, please send me an email telling me what the changes were AND INCLUDING AN UPDATED VERSION OF THE FULL LIST.
If I do agree to write a letter for you, please follow the
instructions above. I receive requests to write many
letters of recommendations each year. Having you submit the
information in the format above helps me streamline the
process and meet your application deadlines.
