  13. Recommendation Letters • Do use specific adjectives when writing about a student. • Do gather information from the student. • Don’t make your letter longer than one page. • Don’t use generic letters for recommendations. • Don’t agree to write a letter with one day's notice. Require two weeks minimum notice. • Don’t report grades; these are on the student's transcript.

  14. Recommendation Letters Deborah's high scores in biology have consistently placed her in the top 5 percent of the class. In addition, her science-fair project in marine biology demonstrated a high level of conceptual understanding of a number of complex varieties of plant and animal life. All of this fits well with Deborah's plan to earn an undergraduate degree, then a master's and Ph.D., so that she can teach college-level biology while performing research on sea urchins. • The above sample is an effective recommendation. It points out: • Superior academic achievement. • Extracurricular activity involvement. • Outstanding personal qualities. • Participation in and dedication to a particular field. • The teacher's confidence in Deborah's abilities.
