A recommendation letter is a document that provides the Admission Committee with a comprehensive insight to your suitable candidature for admission into the concerned University. The letter aims at enabling the Admission Committee to gain a clearer and favorable picture of your experience, achievements, contributions and skills communicated by the recommender through the recommendation letter.
Provided that almost every application necessitates submission of 2-3 recommendation letters, you must have your recommenders identified and agreed to prepare your letter well in time. Also, don’t underrate the importance of an LOR as it is almost as important as your Statement of Purpose, Resume or any other document for that matter. While choosing the right recommender, you must remember a few key pointers following which you will end up submitting outstanding LOR’s to the Admission Committee.
