Recommendation Requests

If you are asking for a recommendation please send me the following information to this email address:

Also please TELL ME you are sending this request so I know to look for it. Please give me at least 2 weeks notice when requesting recommendations.

In addition, a lot of recommendation requests from universities and common app are getting caught up in SPAM folders and don’t always get to me. Please let me know to be on the lookout for an email from a university or common app.
