Letters of Recommendation:

The LBJ School requires three recommendation letters from professional colleagues. The ApplyTexas application will allow you to list the names and e-mail addresses of these recommenders.

They will be asked a short series of questions required by the University in order to submit their recommendation. Your recommenders will then be given the option to type or paste their recommendation letter into a text box or to upload it as a file. Please direct them to upload it as a file.We are unable to modify the questions that your recommenders will be asked on this page, so be sure to request that they address your managerial performance and ability, as well as your motivation to conduct graduate work in the letter that they provide.
