Recommendation Letter Requests – Boomer Policies

  1. To write the best/strongest letter possible, I should have had you in more than one class (where you earned a C or better) and/or you are a long-term advisee (2 years or more).
  2. New letters take 3 weeks (starting from the time I confirm your request and receive ALL of the following materials);  summer requests must be approved by the middle of June or you will wait until fall term.
  3. All requests must be accompanied by a formal WOU-Portal request;  this is the only “legal” way I can access and talk about your records.
  4. You also will have to provide a short “resume” that highlights things like:  work/job experience, extra-curricular activities/leadership, volunteerism – preferably relevant to your goals.
  5. You NEED to provide a clear due date and address(es) for your letter(s).  If you don’t, I will have to write a “to whom it may concern” letter and these never come across well/strong.
  6. Finally, you need to tell me what the outcome of the application was.  All Biology Faculty want to hear whether things worked out or not – either to congratulate you, or to help you with the next step.
