If you plan to ask your counselor for a letter of recommendation please download a Letter of Recommendation Request Form.


* Allow your recommender 2-3 weeks to complete the letter of recommendation.

* It may be a good idea to fill out the request form once and make photo copies to give to the other people you will be asking for a letter from.

* Fill the form out COMPLETELY. Narratives always help, and be as detailed as possible.
