Letter of recommendation

Who should write your letter of recommendation? We suggest someone who knows you personally and who can speak directly about your strengths and experience. Do not focus on the person in your company at the highest level. Be sure that you have been in their class, have reported to them directly, and/or you have shared your interest in graduate school with them.

Please use your recommender’s work email address rather than a personal account like Gmail, which will be more closely monitored in our credential verification process.

Recommendations from relatives and friends are strongly discouraged.

One recommendation is required. We will read up to two.
