Letter of Recommendation

   High School Counselor Recommendation

Dear {Name}:

It is with great pleasure that I recommend ____________ for admission to the university's undergraduate program.

When ____________ told me that he intends to pursue social work as a course of study, my immediate thought was, "what a perfect fit." Few teens, or, for that matter, adults have the level of compassion that ____________ displays. From leading the Peer Mediation Group on campus to volunteering in the county's annual Homeless Count interview project, he puts others first and works to build bridges in the community. On a personal level, ____________ has shared with me that close family members have struggled with mental illness, and he strives to break down societal stigmas in that regard.

Academically, ____________ shines as well. With a ____________ GPA amid a full load of Advanced Placement classes, along with active participation in Choir, ____________ somehow manages to "do it all."

I am certain that ____________ will be an asset to your school, as he has been here at ____________. His intellect, insight, and, most importantly, his genuine empathy for other human beings are rarely matched. Please contact me if you'd like to hear more about this impressive young man.
