Getting a solid LOR

Postby TripTrip » Wed Dec 05, 2012 2:34 pm

I'll be blanketing the T14 once the Dec. scores are released. I retook a 168 with a 4.0, so I'm set either way numbers-wise. However, I go to a state university. I have plenty of professors who are more than willing to write me a letter of recommendation, but almost none of them have had any experience writing letters of recommendation for T14 schools. I know a recommendation is a recommendation, but what is the best way to give my professors the details of the kinds of things admissions committees will be looking for? Is there a good resource I can send them?

More googling will lead to perhaps better results, but here are a few to get you started'
