should I ask my professor for one now, or should I wait until I get my spring semster grades? I just don't feel like asking any of them now, it might divert my focus and create stigma that is unnecessary.
Do you suggest any particular approach? I typically sit in one of the front rows and try to answer questions once or twice a class - should I participate more or see them more during office hours? how much contact do they expect before we ask for a recommendation?
