We will focus on writing up your research proposal in Course 3, but you should work out some of the details with your advisor now (while there is still time to identify and address inadequacies). You will want to get your letter writers in the loop right away too.

Use this tipsheet to help you make the most of your planning with your advisor (or get help finding a great one in the first place).

Your 3 letters provide you additional room to make your case. Learn how to integrate what your letter writers say with the argument that you make in your essays. We will even give you some suggested text that you can use to help you ask for letters.
