If you're interested in asking me for a letter of recommendation, please prepare and send me the following items so that I write the best letter possible:
- a link to the webpage that discusses the program, position, organization, etc. for which you will be applying
- a resume listing any relevant activities, jobs, coursework, publications, etc.
- a brief explanation about how the position or program for which you're applying fits your career goals
- a list of all courses that you've taken with me as your instructor, the grade you received, and any outstanding work that you've done in each class (for example, research paper or group project)
