Letter of Recommendation Request Form
This form hits all of the points that I will need to help make a case for you. It's okay to be informal, but you should take this seriously (I crank out a lot of letters of recommendation, and I read a lot, too: the more organized the information and talking points I have from you, the easier it is for me to make your case).

Please also recall that you should send any application materials -- including ESPECIALLY your resume/CV and any personal statements! -- to me at paul.musgrave@gmail.com. In the subject line, please write "LASTNAME Letter of Recommendation for DEADLINE", where DEADLINE gives me the deadline in DD-MM-YY format.

If this is an updated letter of recommendation request, please remind me.
