How significant are recommendation letters for students in a college application? As per William Fitzsimmons, dean of admissions and financial aid at Harvard, they are "extremely important."

If you are a student, searching for a great letter of recommendation, we can help you understand the steps for writing a strong letter from your lecturers. If you are reading this and you are a teacher, the examples in this blog will guide and inspire you to help your students when they apply to college/university for higher studies. Keep scrolling down and read for the three best letters from lecturers that will help anyone get into college/university, along with an expert breakdown of why they're so strong.

First, let's understand the importance of recommendation letters in your application.

Most officers at college/university, prefer the applicants are respected by professionals.  Since the lecturers rarely meet with the students in person, the recommendation letters, along with the student's own personal essay, play a major role in illustrating his/her academic and personal qualities.

That's why recommendation letters from lecturers, especially those who know their students well, carry a great deal of weight in applications. A letter that expresses a strong vote of support, as well as highlights a student's impressive academic and personal strengths, can have a powerful effect on that student's chances of admission.

How to format a letter of recommendation

Every organization has its way of writing recommendation letters. Make sure you ask the respective person about your requirements. In general, a letter or recommendation can be broken down into the following sections:


Recipient Name:

Recipient Title:

Recipient Address:

Greeting: User Dear Ms/Mr to Address the recipient by their name if possible.

Letter of Recommendation

It is my pleasure to introduce Mr. Safal Paudel as one of the best students in our college. As a student, he was always attentive and conscientiously determined to his work.

Sample Letter #3: Bishwash Tripathi

29th Sept. 2021


I take great pleasure to recommend Mr. Bishwash Tripathi, son of Mr. Ram Tripathi, a permanent resident of Tansen Municipality Ward No. 13, Palpa, Lumbini Province, Nepal, for his higher education. He is an honest student who possesses excellent academic skills along with positive behavior towards her peers and teachers. I have taught her in all her classes and seen her grow from a bright student to the outstanding one he is today.

Living in this competitive world, students strive hard to keep pace with the changing trends in education. With increased pressures on them, they can find themselves slipping up on their academics or losing their way out of frustration. However, Bishwash was never one of them. He worked hard for every bit of success that he received on her report card. By nature, he possesses all the good qualities that make a successful person-dedication to work, punctuality, and most importantly honesty.

I strongly recommend my student Bishwash Tripathi for your college admission process without hesitation

Ram Prasad Thapaliya
