Writing a Letter of Recommendation


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone could give me any tips on writing a Letter of Recommendation for a student for grad applications. I co-supervised this student for a project.

What sort of key things are admissions panels looking for?

Thanks!

If your student apply for research degree, you can mention his/her research potential, contribution to the work ( if applicable), working attitude, communication skills , and may be out of work attitude ( less important than those first three things). If he/she apply for MBA or similar degrees, say about leadership, communication, teamwork,etc.. For both types, give examples/numbers to make what you said concrete. Do not just say that he/she is good/nice. Be specific.
