dear admissions committee:
i am pleased to have this opportunity to recommend one of my capable students at the abc university, mr. hung-doe doe, to your university‘s master degree program in computer science for entering class fall 1996. through my extensive observation of him in both academic and extracurricular fields, i have come to the conclusion that mr. doe possesses a number of valuable qualifications that will make him an outstanding member of his graduate class.
i have had the pleasure of knowing mr. doe when he was under my instruction in the course of electrical engineering during the academic year of 1993. while attending this requirement course, mr. doe has left me with the impression as a bright and hard-working student who is highly motivated in his coursework. his academic integrity can be reflected by the fact that he ranked in the top 10% in the class. unlike most of his peers, who gained knowledge merely from school lecturing, mr. doe has spent a great amount of effort and time on reading advanced articles and textbooks and therefore has developed a firm grasp of this subject. i am of the opinion that my class has provided mr. doe with a solid basic background in electronics and circuits analysis, which is valuable to his academic pursuit in computer science.
an open-minded individual who never let go any learning opportunity and is always willing to share with people his own opinions and ideas, mr. doe, often came to me discussing various questions and problems he encountered during his studies. i was pleased to learn of his strong interest in electronic related subjects and the most up-to-date advancement in this field. his diligence and commitment to coursework has left a deep impression on me. i have, without any doubt, come to consider him to be a highly promising student. with the intelligence and persistence that mr. doe has displayed, he will have no difficulty in succeeding in any academic environment and continue to perform outstandingly in your graduate school.
in general, i consider mr. doe a highly promising applicant to the master degree program in his proposed field. i have the least reservation on his potential to succeed in his future educational as well as professional pursuits. i give him my highest recommendation.
thank you very much for your time and consideration. should you wish to discuss anything pertaining to his application, please do not hesitate to contact me.
