Advice to Applicants

“Letters of recommendation are usually the last application materials to arrive, so ask your professors or supervisors early in the process. Give them all the information they could possibly need to write the most personalized letter they can. This includes providing them with your goal statement, refreshing them on any initiatives you worked on, projects or papers you completed, and anything else to jog their memory so they can really speak to you as an individual.”
