Recommendation letters form Prof. Flemming
More and more students approach me for recommendation letters.
In principle, I am ready to write such letters, but not automatically. Here are the conditions:
1. I want at least one week time for that (NOT “as soon as possible” or “tomorrow”!!) – it is good if I know a deadline.
2. Please, provide the address and institution to which the letter has to be directed, and, if applicable, the points that have to be addressed
3. Provide also the reason why I should recommend you – what are your strengths? Provide your CV and Notenspiegel. I may hesitate to recommend students from the lower end of performance.
4. It would be useful if you would submit already a draft for the letter.
