As early as your sophomore or junior year, you should start writing for information to institutions with programs that interest you. Your undergraduate advisor or other faculty members can provide suggestions and guidance as you decide on which programs to contact. Reference books in the library may also be of help to you.
The Political Science Department no longer offers a recommendation service. Students who wish to establish a reference letter file should contact the L&S Career Services Center.
