asking for a LOR
« on: August 25, 2006, 07:45:32 AM »
Ok, so I went to school in Dallas and now have moved to DC. I want to ask a couple of old professors to write me recommendations (i know them well, I did my honors thesis with them) but i need help on how to ask them. To i just email them? How do i word it?

Thanks so much everyone!!

I used a bit of information from other posts here. My profs are aware of my law school interest. I just told them I will be applying this fall and asked if they would. I offered to go to their office to talk if they wanted to. I'd offer a transcript, resume, and anything else you'd think would help them write the best letter possible.  Both just said to give them an unofficial transcript, resume and any other relevant info, like a PS, Since you know them well, just let them know how you're doing, working and such, then go straight into applying for school and ask.
