Over the next few pages you will see a bunch of questions.
Many of them will be short answer format; the more detail you provide me there, the less likely I will be to miss something important. Only answer questions relevant to the aspects you want me to address in your letter (i.e., you don't need to answer every question).
For those you choose to answer, remind me of every bit of information that could be important. Include courses, projects, committees, organizations, etc., and give specific dates when possible.
I will write your letter using 100% of my own words and opinions, so don't worry about your responses sounding too arrogant or forthcoming --- they are there to jog my memory, not to replace it.
Credit: I adapted many of these comprehensive questions from Susan Finger's NSF GRFP questions and from Burak Kara's reference letter questions.
