Letter of Recommendation Information Sheet for Mr. Dwyer
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine!

Please copy and paste this into an email, word document or google document, complete all information and email me at your completed information.  Remember to include your name and Recommendation Information in the subject line.  I like to tie my letters into you as a person as well as a student or athlete.  It will also help me to help you if you share your college essays with me.  It can just be your drafts or final copies.  This is really to get a sense of what you are writing about and then I can try to relate your essay into some of the things that I write about. 

Writing recommendations takes a considerable amount of time.  I usually get a great deal of letters to write, and I want to do the best job possible.  I usually need a minimum of two weeks to write a letter!  Please do not wait until the last minute to submit to me the information that I need.  A properly completed form will help me to help you!  You may attach additional pages or forms that are relevant to what you need.  You should think about what you need and clearly communicate it to me in writing and with a verbal confirmation.
