Subject: Letter of recommendation
Did you respond to my previous email? If not I will go ahead and reply to the request (see below) without a letter, but have to admit that right now I am furiously modifying several dozen letters of recommendation sent to me from other students. My generating one from scratch with only our class experience together just isn’t in the cards right now.
I will do my best, but can’t answer even the simplest of questions like how long I have known you without your input. I know your grades in my classes and those on your transcript, but they obviously know that without my help. From that alone they know you are a good student and will surely succeed in graduate school, but again, I am wasting their time just restating the obvious.
Again, “Please see http://lowery.tamu.edu/generalceinfo/index.htm section 1.A.4.”
If you sent a letter for me to work on please send it again, since I missed it. I don’t know the deadline for this so I will go ahead and submit my best response, and if you get something to me I will try and go back in and add it later.

This is Joe, I was planning on applying to MIT’s graduate program to pursue a masters degree. I was hoping you could possibly write a letter of recommendation for me to the graduate office. I have thoroughly enjoyed having you as an adviser and studying engineering courses in your classes and I hope to continue studying it in a masters program.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
Texas A&M University
Class of 2021
