Have him/her email your recommendation to firstname.lastname@example.org using an official school email address. Alternatively, your recommender may mail the letter on school letterhead to Newsroom by the Bay, P.O. Box 20105, Stanford, CA 94309. Applications are not complete until the recommendation is received. Clips of your work are not required unless we ask for them.
