NB: I refuse to submit letters using the Common Application platform. Sorry, but it's just way too painful.
If you want me to write a recommendation letter, please read over the following before you ask, and please follow these directions.
Examples include my name, title, address, and phone, which are easily found on my web page.
If you do not fill in this information, I will not supply the recommendation.
A recommendation letter is a privileged correspondence between the writer and the reader. Even though the letter I write would be the same whether you waive access or not, the institution cannot view it as an open and honest correspondence if the student can access the letter.
If I thought my letter would do you more harm than good, I would inform you of this before I wrote such a letter.
For letters I agree to send electronically, you must provide me a plain-text email (no attachments) of the places you want the letters sent.
