The biggest reason for not wanting to honor every reference letter request is it cheapens the ones I write for the students I actually want to write reference letters for. Too often students mistake my genuine like for them as people with a firm belief that they can "excel in a graduate program" or "be a fine addition to your corporate culture."
Don't rent on the top floor: just got back from my unit and found Hurricane Sandy had leaked into several units, including mine. Looks like others got it worse. Otherwise, this place is okay, not great as far as storage units go. Not nearly enough carts and the ones that are avail;able often have broken handles. Staff in moderately unhelpful at best.
