I asked this professor for a recommendation letter. She told me to send her transcript, CV, statement of purpose and the thesis. I have some bad grades (not in her class though) and don't know how to approach this:
- option 1: in my email to her I will tell her the reason why I had those bad grades.
- option 2: I just send her all the materials she asked of me without saying anything about the grades. In the statement of purpose, there were already 1-2 sentences explaining my performance in those classes, so if she reads it, she can understand the situation.
- option 3: I send her the statement of purpose first. For the other materials, I will send them later. Then she will see sop before the transcript
- option 4: I just send her all the materials she asked of me without saying anything about the grades. On the SOP, I don't mention my grade as well. Then, if she asks why my grade is bad, I will explain it to her.
Which one do you think is the best option, or do you recommend other alternatives?
Thank you all!
