Personal Statements, Resumes, and Letters of Recommendation / Re: How do I reconnect with former professors for LORs?« on: November 21, 2006, 12:25:18 PM »
I had a similar situation with a professor I did research with. I emailed him letting him know what I had been doing since college and that I wanted to go to law school and why. I asked if he would still be willing to write a LOR, and asked if I could come in to give him the form and my resume. Then when I went in, I refreshed his memory on what research projects I worked on and what I specifically contributed (the more specific, the better the letter will be).
I think face time is important, as many people are visual & need to see a person in order to remember who they are. Is scheduling a meeting or lunch with each of them too much?
