How to Ask for a Letter of Recommendation

William James College, and many other institutions, use letters of recommendation to get an outside perspective on your academic and/or professional experience. Letters of recommendation are an extension of your resume or application, providing insight into you as a student, employee, and person. It’s a way for us to get to know you and understand how you may excel in one of our programs!
