I think that when the time comes they will ask me to write my rec letters and send them to them, for review and signing. I think the disadvantage of this is that I don't have the perspective they do to see the qualities I have that will help me to succeed in grad school, nevertheless I could ask them for tips and advice for writing the letters.
What are your thoughts and experiences on this?

I have known slugger since he was a freshmen. I have never had the great fortune in all my years to meet a more truely brilliant and profound theorist and mathematician. He has helped me realize greater and more profound truths several times in my own research. I would admit him in a heart beat.
