I am applying to graduate school. I am required to receive recommendation letters from professors. I enrolled in large classes and did not get to know many of my professors. I have been out of school a few semesters and cannot locate the professors I was familiar with. I am having difficulty finding a professor who is willing to write a recommendation for me. Do you have any suggestions regarding recommendations and who I can ask?

Make an appointment for an interview with the professors who you think would give you a good recommendation. Provide a copy of your resume which lists achievements, honors, leadership experience in a club or organization or volunteer and charity work. Visiting the professor in person will provide him or her with the opportunity to assess your potential. An employer who knows you personally can also write one of your recommendations. Graduate schools prefer that the majority of the recommendations come from faculty.
