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.
I am pleased to write this letter for my former student Miss Nan Li， who graduated from this College with an L.B. degree in June Li was admitted to the Department of Law of this College in 1974 through highly competitive entrance examination which is conducted annually and is open to the whole nation. Even in such a selective group. Miss Li made herself distinguished. As professor and dean of the College， I have access to her records of academic work and moral conduct， In her fourth year study， I instructed her in Anglo-American Laws on Trespass. So I have known her quite well. Miss Li＇s performance， like that in many other courses she taken， was excellent with a superior grade of 86 for the first semester， and 84 for the second semester. In our university and in other university here， 80 is considered ＂A＂ ， the highest level. As far as I know， Miss Li wishes to continue her study in Law for an advanced
degree. I am sure she has had sufficient prerequisite knowledge for the subject and certainly has the ability to undertake the study. I recommend Miss Li without reservation and shall appreciate your
favorable consideration of her application.
