Graduate School Recommendation letter

Graduate school recommendation letter


A Graduate school recommendation letter is usually written by a professor or lecturer recommending his/her student be admitted into graduate school at the end or nearing the end of the student’s studies. The student would probably be an exemplary student in his/her studies with potential to excel further in graduate school. It is usually written to the dean of the graduate school who oversees the admission process. It is a formal letter. Since it is to be addressed to someone superior the tone should be respectful.

Such letters come to rescue when you have to apply for higher studies and it is good to have a teacher or professor vouch for you. If you wish to attach any documents to back up your claim you can do that. Make sure that there isn’t error before you post the letter. Briefly, introduce the student and give his credentials.
