- Should I ping you on Google Hangouts/Tool X..?
No. If it is an emergency call me. Please read more about attention residue.
- Will you give me a recommendation if I took your courses?
Generally, taking courses is not sufficient to help me judge your application. At best, I may be able to write something like – XYZ took my course and got a grade Z. Beyond this, Z has not worked with me, so I am unable to judge in further depth. This will likely not strengthen your application. Also, I will write a recommendation on this basis only if you have an A or A+ in my courses.
