What is the etiquette for sending reminder emails to professors writing recommendations for you?

A combination of what Cindy Au has written with some additional details to make the Professors life easier is even better!

The level of FORMALITY depends upon how informal you can be with your Professor and the type of working relationship you have with them -

Provided it’s polite and friendly - than the rest is flexible.

So if you generally speak to them on a first name basis, than continue to do so in writing. If it’s formal - than follow suit and keep it formal.


Hi [Insert Professor’s Name],

I’m looking forward to sending of my application for the programme!

The deadline is actually ! :slight_smile:

If there is anything I can do to help you put my recommendation together to reduce the time it takes to write just let me know.

Thanks so much,

Deepak!
