Recommendation Letters

Many students want to get recommendation letters on file before taking time off between graduating or applying. Others may want a supervisor, mentor, or faculty member to write a letter soon after a job, internship or class has ended so the experience is fresh in their mind. The CDC directs students to the interfolio service which allows you to store rec letters on file (for a fee) until you are ready to send them out.
