When Applying to College, You’ll Need a Resume to Showcase Your Experience and Skills. When You Consider Your Focus Schools and Career, Let These Three Key Factors Help You Get Started With College Recommendation Writing.

Get their permission. References give the best recommendation when they are expecting to do so. A surprise call can lead to awkward hesitation when they are asked about your work habits. It's best to ask their permission to be listed as a reference or recommender and to keep them informed about what you are applying for and your application process. If recommendation letters are required as part of the application process, contact your recommenders as soon as possible so that they have enough time to write a quality letter (at least a week if not more)

I am pleased to be writing this letter of recommendation on behalf of Karen Leyland, a most promising student and wonderful individual. I’ve had the pleasure of teaching Math to Karen during her junior and senior years here at Kirby Prep School. If it were appropriate for teachers to pick favorites, Karen would definitely be one of my top choices. She has a winning attitude full of drive and perseverance that goes unparalleled. She is always attentive in class and has a knack for engaging the whole class in participation, but the attribute that admire the most about Karen is her unwavering kindness. (Source: eforms.com)

What college reps want to know is how the student will fit into their environment. Give specific examples of how the student achieved—did they overcome obstacles or tackle any challenges to reach their goals? I usually write two short paragraphs for the body. Sometimes the first relates character to academics, and the next relates character to extracurricular activities. Other times, I use the student’s characteristics as the main focal points. Colleges are looking for how the student goes above and beyond the normal school experience.

My name is Ramsey County, and I’m very pleased to have taught an intelligent student as Gordon Brown at 123 High School. I’m heading the English department of the school and Gordon has been my best student this far. His drive to be at the top is worthy of emulation. He has been under my mentorship for the past three years and has performed excellently well during extracurricular activities. I strongly believe Gordon will bring his excellence into AAA College, therefore I recommend him for admission into your college. (Source: worldscholarshipforum.com)
