Planning an Early Application to the US or the UK?
Students who are planning to apply in the early round (Oxford/Cambridge/medical) to UK universities or Early Decision/Early Action to a US college should consider speaking as soon as possible to the teachers who might stand as their references next fall. Please check with your university counsellor before you speak to any teachers.
If a teacher agrees to write on your behalf, you should download the appropriate Referee Request Form from the UCO Haiku site, fill it out, and provide to the teacher to assist him or her in writing a stronger letter.
Some teachers receive many requests to write references; it is always better to ask early!
