If you've asked for one, here's what to do.

Despite the formalities here, if I've agreed to write you a letter, I'm happy to do so. Thank you very much for your cooperation. Best wishes!

1) Download this spreadsheet, fill it out, and return it to me by email (not Google Drive etc.) in Excel format (not Numbers etc.). I know this is a pain, but this form allows me to keep everyone's letters, institutions, and dates in order.

2) Send me (by email) any info that will give me a sense of your interests and plans. Typically this includes a draft of your personal statement and a c.v. or resume.

3) Please note that I must receive links for ALL your letters BEFORE I send the first letter. I know this takes a lot of planning and coordination on your part, but I have found that it's necessary.

4) On ALL application forms, you are to fill out, wherever possible, the following info about me:
Name: Jack Bauer
Title: Professor
Institution: University of Dayton
Address: Dept. of Psychology
City etc.: Dayton, OH 45469-1430
Phone: (937) 229-2617
