  3. Letters of Recommendation. At least two (2) letters of recommendation are required for all Whitman School master's candidates. Recommendations should be obtained from those individuals who can speak for your qualifications for graduate study in management. While placement forms or personal letters are acceptable, they frequently provide less information than the committee desires.
