Letters of Recommendation

As part of the application process to various graduate programs, you will be required to provide letters of reference (usually 3). Different programs may ask for these letters to come from specific individuals, such as a science professor. Check with the schools to which you will be applying to make sure that you are satisfying their criteria. If the application is done online, there are usually recommendation forms provided. You want to make sure the appropriate forms accompany any letters that are submitted on your behalf. Not using the recommended forms can delay processing of your application.
