IMPORTANT: This is NOT the official letter of recommendation, but rather a list of the questions that will be sent to the individuals you identify as your recommenders in the online application. These questions are provided to help you determine whom to request to write your recommendation letters. The actual recommendation letter and ratings form must be submitted online by your recommenders. Once you register your recommenders on the application, an email will be sent to them with instructions on how to access the recommendation form and submit it electronically.
