Suggesting to teachers how to write a LOR?
« on: August 21, 2007, 11:14:20 AM »
Is it a good idea to suggest to your teachers that they incorporate anecdotes from your time in class within their LOR? I've been out of school for 3 years, so I'm worried that my LORs will be somewhat bland. I want to incorporate Ivey's advice, but at the same time, don't want my professors to think I'm too pushy.

I'm wondering the same thing. But how will they remember specific anecdotes though?

Would it be considered bad etiquette to request a LOR by email??? 
I'm out of school and not really in that neighborhood....

There is nothing wrong with email. If they dont respond then give them a call.

As far as telling them what you want them to write about...this is not a problem either. Ask them is they will attest to...whatever you want them to write about:

Performance
Difficulty of class
Your personal conditions while in their class
Etc

Everything I just recommended I did myself and it worked out fine. Asking someone to write about specifics is something that I have heard alot of people say that they did.
