I am planning to ask professors that I haven't seen in two years since graduation for letters of recommendation.
I want to ask in person so they can see and remember me, but I want to set an appointment ahead of time for this meeting. I really don't want to drop in on the during office hours randomly.
I am having trouble thinking of how this email should me worded.
If I don't allude to the letter of the recommendation and say something like:
*Dear Professor, I was in your class two years ago. I would like to meet with you to discuss something. Sincerely, Student *
Then they have no idea what I am meeting about. But if I say:
Dear professor I was in your class two years ago. I got an A+. I would like to meet with you to discuss you writing me a letter of recommendation. Thanks for your time.
...Then it's like I am just asking over email, which I don't want to do because I haven't seen them in multiple years.
Can anyone think of a better wording for this email?
