Recommendation Letter

It is great to know that you want to pursue a higher degree!

The necessary condition for asking for a letter from me is to get an A in my courses. For classes with sizes above 150 (multiple sessions combined), a tighter condition applies (among the top 15% of the final grade), and our TAs will notify those among the top 15%.

If you fail to meet the necessary condition, I am afraid that, even if I agree to write a letter, my letter will be lukewarm and useless, if not harmful, for you. Thus, I suggest you reach out to other faculties who would write you a strong letter.

If you meet the necessary condition and want a letter from me, please send me an email in September, not earlier unless in special circumstances. I will reply if I am happy to write you a letter.

If I agree to write you a letter, here are the logistics:

Please find my information at https://myweb.cuhk.edu.cn/zongbohuang. My phone number is 0755-23518856. What you need to do is to fill in my information as your recommender when applying. The programs that you apply to will send an email to me. Then, I will upload a letter for you.

There is no need for you to provide a draft. Yet, please send me your CV, transcript, a photo (such as student card photo or other photo, so that I can make sure that I will use he/she correctly in the letter), and a page of self-introduction which contains information that is not included in the CV and transcript. Please send these files to me via email when you start to apply.

The deadline for application is for you, but not for my letter. Please refrain from asking me whether I have sent your letter unless it has been three weeks after you submit your applications or under other special circumstances. I will send letters out in batches with some lags.
