asking professors at undergrad to recommend you for their own grad program

<p>this seems awkward to should one go about it?</p>

<p>What's awkward about it? Just go and say you are interested in your own school's grad program and if they would be kind enough to write a recommendation for you.</p>

<p>Many universities discourage their own undergrads from applying to their grad school - you'll want to see if your department has such a policy before asking. If not, find out who's on the comittee and do well in their classes. Then ask away!</p>

<p>What?! That's incest!</p>
