1. Consider carefully the people you ask to write a recommendation letter. Always ask them in person, or through a personal email.
2. Notify them at least two weeks prior to any deadlines, and be sure to provide them with a resume at that time.
3. Provide clear instructions for the delivery of the completed recommendation letter.
4. If completing the Common Application, please speak to your individual counselor (and any teacher asked to submit recommendations) before completing the application online.
