Letter of Recommendation

If we have met and agreed that I will write a recommendation for you, please email me the following:

Furthermore, at least two weeks (and ideally four weeks) before the first letter is due, e-mail me your answers to the following questions (the more details the better):

(1: Below Average (lower 50%), 2: Good (21-50%), 3: Excellent (6-20%), 4: Outstanding (upper 5%), 5: Truly Exceptional (highest 1%)). 

Before asking for my letter I request that you commit to follow all guidelines and requirements for your program as your participation reflects more broadly on me and University of Missouri.

Please be sure to send me e-mail reminders as deadlines approach, and feel free to chat with me about other ways you can make the letter writing process go as smoothly as possible for you and your letter writers. Good luck!
