Prof asked that i draft my letter of rec?


Recommended Posts

Hi there -


So one of my professors asked me to draft my own letter of rec. I'm not really looking to discuss whether this is ethical or not (it seems to be common practice, and I know he'll be changing it, but I assume just wants to see how I view myself/how I want to be portrayed). SO - I just have no idea what to write.

a. what's the format? What do professors generally say/what do programs want to hear?

b. I'm nervous about being presumptuous/overselling myself - I'm sure if I undersell myself, he'll fix that, but i'll feel awkward if I over sell myself.
