Hey everyone. So I've been shadowing a dentist this week. Although I've only shadowing him for this week, I've known him since 5th grade and hes a family friend. I plan on mailing him and his staff a thank you letter for letting me come in this week. My question is, tomorrow is my last day then I'm heading back to school for the summer and I wasn't sure if I should ask him tomorrow to write me a letter of rec or if I should ask him in my thank you letter? What would you guys do? And if you suggest asking him tomorrow, how do I go about asking him. If anyone could respond before tomorrow at 730am that would be great! :)
