So I'm getting ready to apply for 2008 app cycle. I know, it sounds little bit too early (seeing that some of you're getting ready to apply for 2007 cycle right now lol) Anyways, I really would want this chem professor to write me of letter of recommendation right now, since I will most likely not see him next year(due to transferring). Anyways, should i ask for it and keep it myself until I have to apply? How does it work? Does letter of rec have to be sealed when you send them? I assume not, since you have to send multiple copies. Therefore should i ask for it now, and keep it until next 2008~2009 cycle?? And one more thing, do you think it will matter if my letter of recommendation comes for Junior college professor? He has a Phd in chemistry, so I don't think it should matter. thanks in advance!
