    is it most appropriate to ask an old science professor in a different city who probably doesn't remember me for a letter through email or in some other way?

    i know, ideally i wouldn't have to ask him at all, but it looks like i'm going to need his letter none the less. i received an A in his class and i think if i had the chance to talk with him he would write a decent letter.

    If you don't think he will remember you if you call, I see no problem with it. The worst he could do is say no.

    Thats what i did. I was living in NY and went to school in Cali. I asked a teacher from a huge lecture who had no idea who i was. He didnt want to say he didnt remmeber me so he wrote me a great LOR. It worked out well.
