Recommendations are a very important piece of this application, as well as your application to professional school. Cultivating relationships is key to getting both a great education and great recommendations. Get to know your professors so that when it comes time to ask for recommendations, they know you well and can speak to your strengths. It is considerate to request recommendations at least one month in advance. Be sure to provide your professor with your resume or CV, as well as the deadline.
