A complete application includes two letters of recommendation. Our preference is for one of the recommendation letters to come a COAA Member who knows you and your work well. If a COAA member is unavailable, professors, teaching assistants, and internship supervisors are acceptable. Select a recommender who knows you well rather than one whom you think will impress us. Ideally the letters will provide comparative comments that distinguish you from your peers.
