INSTRUCTIONS: The purpose of this form is to gather information that will help your daughter’s
college counselor write an accurate, supportive, and insightful letter of recommendation. You know
your daughter best. Put yourself in the mind of a college admissions officer. What attributes and
gifts could your daughter contribute to any given college community? Share any anecdotes that
would illustrate those qualities. Every insight helps us add depth to the two dimensional portrait
presented by her grades, curriculum, and standardized test scores. This is your opportunity to be the
proud parent. Be enthusiastic and frank. Information you provide will be used with care and will not
be shared with your child (although you are welcome to share this with her if it seems appropriate).
Let us know if any information on this form should be kept confidential in the school’s contact
with colleges.
