What's the secret to getting the best letter of recommendation?
Here are some tips:
After a faculty member or other individual has agreed to write a letter for you, give that person a portfolio including your resume, a brief description of the opportunity for which they are writing the letter, the date the letter is due and how it is to be delivered (request online, hard copy, etc.)
Include a draft of your personal statement and a short list of why you think you would be very appropriate for the position or opportunity
Please give the letter writer plenty of time
Afterwards, write a nice thank you note preferably on good stationery - and do let the them know the outcome
