Mattk87 Posted August 11, 2010 Share Posted August 11, 2010 Ok I have graduated with a degree in history in may and want to get some letter of recommendations, the only problem is I didn't really plan a lot while I was an undergrad about going to grad school. The end result is I never really forged connections with any of my professors, so I am worried about getting a letter of reccomendation. I have contacted one of my professors from my class last semester where I had to write a research paper. He agreed to write me a letter of reccomendation so that is one down. However, I am really not comfortable going back and asking any of my other professors. While I got As in their classes I never really went to their office and got to know them. I have been thinking about taking a couple extra college history classes (preferably where you have to write a research paper) with the goal of specifically building a relationship with the professor and then asking for a letter of reccomendation. Is this a worthwhile strategy? Do your letter of reccomendations have to be from when you were persuing your undergrad degree? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
