Recommendation Letters

Directions for students requesting a letter of recommendation from Dr. Knorr (scroll down for internships, summer programs)

After asking Dr. Knorr for a college recommendation, please complete the following steps:

1.Write a letter to Dr. Knorr including information such as what you do outside of class (clubs, music, sports, volunteer, etc.) as well as what you think you might want to major in and why.  What makes you unique?  What makes you you?

2.E-mail your letter to Dr. Knorr (please include your name in the file name). 

3.Sign in to Naviance.

4.Under the “Colleges” tabs, select “Colleges I’m Applying To”.

5.Scroll to the bottom of the screen and list Dr.Knorr as someone who is writing a letter of recommendation.  This will send her an automated e-mail so she knows to upload the letter to Naviance.

After following these instructions, you’re all set.  This means you do not have to fill out the Naviance questionnaire (at least not for Dr. Knorr).

Please note that Dr. Knorr takes writing college recommendations very seriously, and it often takes at least 30 minutes to write one for each student. You will increase the chances of her saying YES if you ask BEFORE the end of school so she can write them in July and August! If you ask in the fall, there must be at least two weeks between the date you ask and when the letter is due.


After asking Dr. Knorr for a general (i.e. volunteer or internship) recommendation, please complete the following steps:

1.Write a letter to Dr. Knorr including information such as what you do outside of class (clubs, music, sports, volunteer, etc.) as well as why you are applying for this particular opportunity.  What makes you unique?  What makes you you?

2.E-mail your letter to Dr. Knorr (please include your name in the file name) along with

a. Application deadline

b. URL of where letter is to be submitted

c. Name/address to whom the letter should be addressed

d. Name of program you’re applying to

e. Stamped & addressed envelope if a letter
will be sent by mail

Dr. Knorr tries to turn things around quickly, but she needs at least one week between when you ask and when you need the letter completed.
