A common component of graduate and professional school applications, letters of recommendation provide contextual information about you as a person and academic that your transcript and application might not otherwise illustrate. Most schools require 2-4 reference letters.
Your interests after graduation can change and evolve. Maybe you'll apply to graduate or professional school after working for a couple years -- who knows! With tim, however, it gets more difficult to write meaningful letters of recommendation as memories naturally fade. Account for this by asking for letters of recommendation now -- we'll keep them on file until you need them, for up to 10 years! Learn more about the Credential File Service
