Hey, I had a couple of question about getting my professor to write a recommendation letter for me. I am applying to GA Tech, U of I Urbana Champaign, and UT Austin for Fall 2011. I am going to get my Physics I and Cal II professors to write my recommendation letters after I make A's in their class this semester. I was wondering how the process works. Do they print it and sign it and give it to me to send to colleges, or will each professor have to write three recommendation letters and send to each college? I was wondering if theres any way I could nicely ask the professor if he could change the letter and perhaps tailor it for my school. For example he could say I always talk about the research going on UT Austin on the letter for that school, and then on the GA Tech one he could write about something else. Keep in mind I am not saying to change the entire letter. I am wondering how to ask them to make the letter specific to the school I am applying to. Thanks.
