As a teacher in Department of Biology, Nankai University, a leading university in China, I am very pleased to take this opportunity to recommend one of my favorite students to your PhD program.
In September, 2004, Miss Zhang was my students in General Biology, the first professional course they take in the field. She likes it very much. I teach her in an open and interactive manner, she is active and passionate about answering class questions. Miss Zhang is bright, energetic and enthusiastic girl who loves speaking out her own ideas. She never escapes from those points of which she is skeptical. Apart from that, she often puts forward her ideas upon questions and exchanges all of her innovate ideas with me after class.
Upon ending of General Biology course, I asked my students to write an essay upon their understanding of biology. I discovered Miss Zhang’s essay was so impressive and persuasive; her careful essay comes from dozens of references to Biology literatures. In essay Miss Zhang stretched out her creative thinking upon status quo of biological research and branches in the field of biology. All of this speaks to her creative and logical and scientific thinking capability. I am gladly to say that Miss Zhang has a clear understanding about General Biology, that comprehension has been reflected fully in her essay. Therefore Miss Zhang got a full point for her essay in her class, and other students took it as model essay for granted.
I believe Miss Zhang’s industriousness, passion and dedication will make her an ideal candidate you are seeking for your program, so I highly recommend her without any hesitation to you. And I will greatly appreciate it if you could accept her into your program.

dear prof. dr.0000
i take great pleasure in writing a letter of recommendation for dr. 0000 to support his application for a postdoctoral position in your lab.
dr. 00 is an outstanding graduate student working for the m.s. degree under my supervision. in my contact with him in the university, his creativity and attitude to research work gave me deep impression. he always proposed new ideas on his research and could resolve problems by himself, i was very satisfied with him.
dr 00 has been working on molecular luminescence research about six years. as i know, most of his researches have been concentrated on bioanalytical chemistry in his master’s work, such as protein and nucleic acids assays etc. in these fields, dr. 00 has strong background and research ability. he has and would be published several papers in international journals. i am often interested in reading his papers in publication and discussing with him. i am very appreciated of his research ability.
dr 00 also possesses very fine character. he is a devoted research worker. he works on weekends. he is an honest and smart, reliable and responsible person, and is very cooperative too.
based on these qualities, i believe this young man will achieve greater academic success in his future work. therefore, i strongly support his application, and it would be greatly appreciated if you could give him your favorable consideration.
please feel free to contact me if i can answer any additional questions about 0000. my address is as follows:

In capacity as Professor of Mathematics at Fudan University?I'm writing to recommend Mr. Wang?Gesintosyour PhD program in Computer Science. I have known Mr. Wang since his sophomore year of college?and have acted as his thesis advisormentor. In my experience?he is a gifteddiligent student and an admirably hard worker.
Wang is an impressive student because he has been forced to overcome the significant challenge of a serious illness during his freshman year. When I first met Wang in my Discrete Math class, he did not appear to be anything special to me. While his exam scores were good, they were not as high as I would now expect of him. What I didn't know then was that due to his illness. Wang was attempting to take all of the difficult early mathematics courses at one time including Discrete Mathematics, Advanced Mathematics, Linear Algebra and Possibilities. While most students found preparing for just one set of these exams difficult?Wang was overwhelmed by four of them. But in the end?he achieved an impressive score on the final exam which made me conscious of his unusualdetermination he demonstrates when confronting difficult challenges.
Mr. Wang I have often talked about a variety of mathematicscomputer science conceptsproblems. During these discussions?I always found him to be delightfully intelligent. Not only does he quickly understand the conceptsproblems presented to him, he is able to analyze these problemspresent solutions. But perhaps most important is that Wang's thinking is intensely rigorous. When looking at anyquestion; he carefully scrutinizes itif he finds any uncertain issue; he clears them up immediately. I believe this kind of thought is essential to become an excellent computer programmer.
Serving as his thesis advisor, I had a first-hand opportunity to observe the way in which Wang's mind works. In his senor thesis?Mr. Wang mainly discussed two challenging questions in regards to″ANN″。 In our books in China?knowledge of ANNits uses are very rare. Few people in China have studied this to picconse quently?the materials that are available on ANN are limited. Workingon this difficult project?not only did Mr. Wang rise to the challenge?but he went abovebeyond the call of duty to analyze his secondary sourcestest them for accuracy in practice. In this way?he found mistakes in the book that we use. His diligencehard work made me extremely proud of him.
