2. Identify three recommenders
On the application form, you will be asked to provide contact information for three professional references who are best able to assess your potential for graduate-level academic work and for the profession of social work. This includes:
- Classroom instructors
- Academic advisors
- Current or past employers, supervisors or professional colleagues
Do not use personal friends, relatives, friends of the family or other personal relationship sources. In addition, do not use clients or individuals your proved services to, or therapists or other individuals you receive services from.
GrAdMIT will send emails to recommenders providing them instructions on how to electronically submit their letter of recommendation ONLY AFTER you officially submit the application. Plan ahead to give your references enough time to submit their recommendations before the deadline.
