When you ask a teacher/boss/coach, etc for a letter of recommendation, please keep the following things in mind:
– Give at least 2 weeks time to write a good letter
– Make the request in writing
– Include a resume or list of activities during high school
– You CANNOT have a relative write you a letter of recommendation
Below is a “fillable” PDF of a Letter of Recommendation Request form that you can type in & print to give to the adults who will write your recommendations. The second page is an Activities List that you can use if you don’t already have a resume or activities list.
