Lesson 16 walks through the process of requesting a recommendation letter.
Your recommendation letter is an important part of your application because of the following reasons:
- It serves to showcase and reveal your character, strengths and experiences to assure to the admission officers you are an asset to the university
- It can help you stand out from other applicants
- It acts as an endorsement of you
The teacher who will write your Recommendation Letter will refer to your BridgeU profile for additional information in order to help strengthen your letter. Therefore, it’s really useful to have your information up to date on BridgeU.
Either as a group lesson or individually, work through the activities in lesson 16 below. You'll need access to your BridgeU account.
Here's a video walking you through the activities:
