Letter of Recommendation - Questions & Answers

Question :  I have been out of school for five years and recommendations are hard to come by. I no longer have contact with my former professors who need to write letters of recommendations for me for graduate school admissions. What can I do?

That's a difficult dilemma, indeed. It may sound strange, but try contacting your professors. Believe it or not, most of us usually keep records on classes and students for years. We're used to hearing from old students years after graduation. So although it may seem as if it's a long shot - it may not be as difficult as you think. 

In addition to professors, also have one recommendation letter from someone who knows you now. Perhaps an employer who can attest to your work habits? An alternative is to enroll in a graduate course (as a nonmatriculated,  or non-degree-seeking student), perform well, and then ask the professor to write on your behalf.
