Advice for letters of recommendation

Dear letter writers,

Thank you for taking the time to write a thoughtful letter of recommendation. When constructing your letter, please consider the following points as these points will be used when making our admissions decisions.

It would be helpful to us if you would address as many of the following points as you can. Initial review of applications begins shortly after January 31; please submit letters by that date. Applications that become complete after that date will still be considered until we complete our recruiting.

We realize that writing these letters is a time-consuming task. Thank you for your willingness to do this. When complete, please submit your letter via the instructions you receive by email. If you have questions, please reach out to the Graduate Director.
