Are you planning to apply to a graduate program next year? Then it's a good idea to start planning your application early. While every school has different requirements, you will need to prepare and submit official transcripts, test scores, application essays and letters of recommendation. Most schools require at least three letters of recommendation. Who should you ask for a letter of recommendation? Professors and supervisors are the obvious candidates, but you should always spend some time considering who knows you and your abilities well enough to offer a quality recommendation letter.
