Letters of Recommendation

We are getting much, much higher quality students now than when I first got here 10 years ago. It’s like we are teaching an entirely different student population, and that’s great.

The downside is that I now have to write letters of recommendation for graduate school, which I never did before. And if done right, it’s very hard, time-consuming work. I’m very happy to do it but I never understood why people used to complain about the time it takes them to write recommendation letters. Now I totally get it. If you really believe in the students and want to write really good letters, it’s hard.
