I'm applying to a BS/MS program and I'm gathering recommendations. I'm an international student from China and I was transferred to my current college last year.
Two weeks ago, I went to see my professor during his office hours to ask if he could write me a recommendation letter. He agreed and told me to email him.
I sent my request a week later and it was just a general email asking for recommendation (without mentioning when I'd visited him).
I still haven't got a response from that professor. It's possible that the professor didn't recognize me in the email, since I sent that only one week after going to his office.
Should I leave him a reminder in a follow-up email? Or should I do so in person?
