Timing of all this
« on: April 28, 2009, 07:55:27 PM »
Hey everybody,

I'll be a senior next year, and plan on getting my LOR's fall semester. I know a few professors already that I'll be asking at the beginning, but I'll need one or two more from classes that I'll take fall semester. My question is: When should I ask for them? The semester starts September 8, and I want to get my apps in as soon as possible. It would seem odd to ask a professor for a LOR when I've only known them for a few weeks. Advice?

P.s. I'm a transfer student, which is why I don't have a multitude of professors I could ask.

If I may clarify... I'm trying to strike a balance between getting to know my profs next fall (in order to get decent LOR's), and getting my applications submitted in good time. I don't want to be at a disadvantage if I can help it! 8) 8)

I would think that you would have to wait until the class was over before asking for letters of recommendation.

How many are you asking at the beginning of the semester?  You only need two, you know.
