    Hello,

    I have teacher I had that I would really like to ask for a LOR, but she no longer works at my school. The only contact infomation I have is her e-mail at her new school she works at (I think?).

    I was just wondering how I should go about this? Is it proper to ask over email for a LOR? This is the non-science professor LOR, (she was my sculpture teacher, younger lady, may not care about being "proper"). Should I try an set up a meeting with her? Should I not ask her for the letter at all? Any ideas?

    Thanks

    E-mail her, see if she remembers you, and then see what her reply is. From there ask her if it is possible if she could write you an LOR because you want to apply to dental school. Tell her you're willing to come meet with her again (if it's possible) or do whatever she wants. This is not an impossible situation.

    Thanks, I took your advice...I was just more worried that it is totally taboo to ask for a LOR via email. I honestly could say she probably wouldnt care, shes pretty laid back. I know it wasnt an impossible situation, just wasnt sure how to go about it. Thanks again!
