Who should I ask for my letters of recommendation?

Recommendations should be from faculty members and mentors.  It’s important for you to know what a weak letter of recommendation is: a weak letter is one that says you are a good student and nothing else.  A strong letter of recommendation will be: this student is great, and then it should go into detail about why the recommender believes that you are so good based off of your previous interactions.  Be sure to let your recommenders know that faculty and graduate students review the applications, so that they can gear their letter towards that audience.
