As Dean and President of Academic Committee of Mechanical and Electronic Engineering Department in Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, which enjoys high reputation in Asian telecommunication field, I am very pleased in recommending Mr.
Gregory Tang to study in your renowned university.
I was his teacher of the compulsory course of encoding and data processing and the director of his graduation thesis.
And we also had very close contact when he was the chief editor of our departmental newspaper, so I knew him quite well about his academic performance and personal character.
In my course of encoding and data processing, he revealed keen appetite for knowledge by his attentive and active class participation.
His well-founded mastery of the course supported by his solid mathematics background won him the first place in the class with the term final score of 96, topping all of his fellow students.
His remarkable performance in this course had given me very deep impression.
Mr.Gregory Tang is well known in the department for his diligence and perseverance in study and researches.
When he was taking part in SONY Cup National University and College Students Electronic Design Competition, I could always find him doing experiments in the lab, even late at night.
And the AI Electric Scoreboard System designed by his team finally won the 2nd prize after intense competition with electronic aces from every corner of this country.
In November 1999, the appraisal team decided to recommend Mr.
Gregory Tang to be enrolled as graduate students with exemption of entrance exams.
But at last because of his personal pursuit and plan of development, he abandoned this recommendation.
I respected his choice of personal orientation though I felt his refusal of this offer a pity.
Before his graduation, he mentioned to me in a conversation that he planned to work for two years and then would apply to study abroad.
I felt quite glad of his plan as by my knowledge this university is of great fame and I also believe he can further enhance his capabilities of every aspect in this field if educated in a more liberal academic environment.
Therefore, I hereby strongly support Mr.
Gregory Tang‘s application to be enrolled by your program.
And his extraordinary performance I have learned through direct or indirect contacts, along with his working experience in R&D of Hutchison Telecommunications have made me convinced that he will be an outstanding candidate deserving your favorable consideration.
To Whom It May Concern:
I am very pleased to recommend Martha Holden for admission to your university program.
As her guidance counselor for three years I have watched this young woman develop both academically and personally into a mature individual ready in every way for her college years.
Martha is bright, energetic, compassionate and genuinely well rounded.
Her grades have been consistently above average in all of her courses, and she has actively participated in a diverse assortment of extracurricular activities ranging from track and field and chorus to the school yearbook and our drama club.
Martha has also spent considerable time outside the school involved in the community.
This has included work with Meals on Wheels and volunteering 10 hours a week at one of our area's shelters for battered and abused women.
They think so much of her at the shelter they have offered her a paid internship for next summer.
Previously, this internship had never been awarded to anyone before the end of their college sophomore year.
Despite all the preparations that will be required for going off to college next fall, Martha told me she is absolutely thrilled about this opportunity and feels it will enhance her university studies.
Unlike many students who are not sure which field to pursue, Martha has made clear to us all that her goal is to do Social Work.
To this end she has worked tirelessly in our pilot program for mentoring Special Education students mainstreamed into our school.
In closing, let me take a moment to recount an incident which I believe speaks volumes about the superior nature of this candidate.
Two years ago I was returning from lunch to my office when I saw ahead of me in the hallway 90 pound Martha, arms stretched out between two 180+ pound students, one a Special Ed student and the other a school bully.
Other students were standing by motionless or laughing while Martha showed the leadership and courage to immediately put an end to the embarrassing fight that had erupted.
It is clear to me as I hope it is to you that this young woman, Martha Holden, is an exceptional candidate, one that would contribute greatly to any program.
I wholeheartedly recommend her and wish her the very best in all future endeavors.
