Writing your own LOR

Recommended Posts



I've seen this topic around on the forums before but I didn't quite find any useful info so I thought I'd ask. I have been helping a professor (in her lab) for about 2 years and when I asked her if she could write me a LOR she said I should write the draft myself.


I've never written one (or seen one) before and was wondering what criteria makes an excellent LOR?

Is there a specific format?

An approximate length?

I feel like it would be very strange praising myself in my own letter...


Thanks in advance
