Essay and recommendations for PhD [#permalink] New post 14 Feb 2005, 04:41
Hi,

I'd like to ask for advice on PhD application documents. I need to provide two academic references. And the question is what referees should write there? I guess that I will write references by myself for several reasons - referees don't speak English, have no experience writing such letters and they are just busy to do it.
I think available topics are academic success, research and academic activites experience, personal qualities.

Also I need some tips for essay composing. This should be not an essay about why do I want to take PhD course, but motivation to take part in particular project.
I guess here I should point on my research experience, experience in the field of project and my views on the project development.

Thanks.

You are right. See SOP and reco post below for some pointers. Make sure your recos from your two profs are not similar !

Importantly, your recos must talk about some actual involvements between you and your profs.
