DON’T ASK IT FROM ANYONE

Just because you are best friends with the faculty(who’s not even in the field you are applying for) doesn’t mean you will ask from them. Ask those who’s words will actually help you get in that college.

TAKE A MINI BIO

If your teacher doesn’t know you well or you want somethings in that letter specifically, take a mini bio along containing all info about you. This will not only make their work easier but you will also get a letter as per your need.

PUT IN SOME EFFORT

Don’t just ask your faculty to write you a letter and hope that they will do it instantly. Remind them every other day and interact with them genuinely. Show them that you actually want that letter and how much it means to you.
