I know that everyone says that one should talk to professors after office hours and get to know them and whatnot, but I think I am totally incapable of this. I wish to apply to graduate school in mathematics in the winter and I need three letters of recommendation. I have done some research (if you can call it that) but I don't think it's anything impressive (some programming) and I have really only talked to one professor outside of class (not counting the professor in charge of the research). I find myself just asking trivial questions that I sort of already know the answers to just to have an excuse to try and chat with professors in higher level courses, but I am just too awkward at times. I have a 3.7 gpa in math and am taking some higher level undergraduate analysis courses next year but really only one will count towards my application. Is there any way I can make up for lost time and actually find someone to get to know my work and who would probably write a letter for me?
