Robert M. Strain, PhD


Please read this if you'd like me to write you a letter of Recommendation letter.

If I have agreed to write a recommendation for you, please provide me with

  • a copy of your transcript
  • a copy of your personal statement (if applicable)
  • all required forms (with as much information filled out as possible)
  • any and all letter of recommendation waver forms
  • stamped and addressed envelopes

Also please email me brief answers to as many of the following questions as you can as soon as possible:

  • What is your year and concentration?
  • For what are you applying?
  • Please send me a list of the programs and due dates to which you are applying.
  • How would you describe yourself?
  • What are some of your academic accomplishments?
  • What are some of your nonacademic accomplishments?
  • What are your long terms goals and how would a successful application help you achieve them?
  • Anything else that you think I should know for the purposes of writing your recommendation letter.

Last but not least, please be sure to send me a reminder two weeks before your recommendation letter is due.
I'm usually prompt but sometimes I do get swamped.
