2023 Summer Recommendation

posted Nov 7, 2022, 9:41 AM by Mistaah Yim

You need to speak to me in person.  Please do not assume that I’ll write you a recommendation.

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!
