Letter Of Recommendation Sample For Former Employee 2


Graduate School Recommendation
December xx, 20xx
To the Review Committee:
I am pleased to write a letter of recommendation for Janet Lerner, an honors undergraduate student in our
program. I have known Janet for more than two years. I came to know her very well when she was a
student in my economic geography course. This summer, I hired her to work on an NSF-sponsored
research project on Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change. And for the past six months,
we have been developing a laboratory manual for my undergraduate course on the global economy. It is
on the basis of this extensive experience that I write a letter of unequivocal support.
Janet is an undergraduate student in the honors program at Mythic University. The honors program is
designed to provide the educational experience of a small Ivy League college within a large public
university. To be accepted, a student must have high SAT scores, be an excellent writer, and have very
good high school grades. Students fulfill their course requirements by taking honors courses or by
selecting a combination of classes with a heavy emphasis on graduate seminars and independent reading
courses. Students must maintain a GPA of 3.2 or better in all courses in order to remain in the honors
program. Janet has fulfilled this requirement admirably, maintaining a GPA of 3.8 or better throughout
her career. Over the last few years, Janet designed a difficult curriculum for herself and has been very
successful in combining graduate seminars and advanced undergraduate reading courses to fulfill her
degree requirements. She is comfortable with herself and is well-recognized by her peer group. She, along
with her peers from the honors program, will enter the nation’s best graduate schools next year in such
varied fields as medicine, law, and other allied social sciences. She seeks to enroll in your graduate
planning program.
Janet is an enthusiastic, energetic, and exceptionally well-organized student. She writes beautifully, is
widely read, and demonstrates good quantitative skills. In my economic geography course, she was the
best student in the class. Her performance exceeded that of the incoming graduate students, including an
NSF fellowship recipient. She always came to class prepared and was clearly far above her peers in
understanding and appreciating the course material.
I have been especially impressed by Janet’s determination and sparkle. Her work on the Model United
Nations program (MUN) is an extremely large responsibility. The Model United Nations program
convenes approximately 1000 high school students from around the world to simulate the experience of
the UN. Janet has responsibility for designing and executing all phases of the simulation. She reviews the
agendas of the UN over the previous year, and then collaboratively develops the student-run assembly
