2020 Summer Rec Request Form

You need to speak to me in person FIRST. Please do not assume that I’ll write you a recommendation. After speaking and confirming that I'm willing, please fill the request form by completing the google form: 2020 summer recommendation request form.

I will not write more than three summer recommendations. If you are asking another teacher for summer recommendation, then I'll not write one for you.

To streamline the recommendation writing process, I'll be using the following summer recommendation form for Saratoga HS. Here's the link to the blank form:

Some of you will be applying to summer internships or summer programs that require recommendations from instructors. Think long and hard before applying to these internships. Most of the summer internships are highly competitive, sometimes with people applying from all over the world. You should have a STRONG interest in doing scientific research if you are applying to them (that is, not simply applying to boost your resumé). Finally, you should spend your summers doing something you are passionate about. Don’t spend your summer doing a science internship if you would rather be coaching youth basketball!

As of January 24th, I'm no longer accepting summer recommendation requests as I've reached my limit.
