  • Students requesting letters of recommendation: A professor should not provide a letter of reference for a student unless they can write a letter that is very positive and specific. Therefore, your goal should be to become the kind of student professors can rave about in recommendations: hardworking, collegial, intellectually inquisitive, interactive, and honest. Consider establishing and maintaining strong interactions during your program with professors, so that they know you well enough to write for and about you. You should not ask for letters from professors with whom you have not had positive interactions.  The best letters come from professors who have served on your committees, or collaborated with you in research.  Also, consider professors who had you in courses where you were highly interactive during the course.
