√推荐人的选择
写推荐信的第一步就是要选择推荐人。
1. 选了解你的人——只有这样的人才能够针对你的优、缺点进行深入分析,继而提供有深度的推荐。
2. 选能够支持你申情的人——他们会例举对你最有利的案例,突出对你的正面评价。

If the application is your chance to talk about what makes you stand out, think of teacher recs as a way to reinforce your themes. The best choice isn’t always the teacher whose class you aced; better to pick the one who can describe what you’re like as a person. Ask if they can write you a strong recommendation.

√推荐信的内容
1.How long have you known the applicant and in what capacity?
2. What do you consider the applicant’s talents or strengths?
3. What do you consider the applicant’s weaknesses or developmental needs?
4. What industry/function might best suit this individual, and what do you see this person doing in ten years? Why?
5. If you have any additional comments that you think would assist the admissions committee in making its decision, please add them here.
