Recommendation Letters

If you are taking off time between graduating and applying to graduate school, it is wise to get your recommendation letters on file. You may want your 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 recommendation letters on file (for a fee) until you are ready to send them out.
