Thank You Letter for Recommendation
Writing letters of recommendation is hard work!
During college application season, it is likely that your teachers, counselors, coaches, and supervisors will be receiving a lot of requests to write recommendation letters for students.
Be sure to take time out of your schedule to send your recommenders thank you letters.
Below I’ve provided 3 examples of how you can say thank you to your recommenders.
- Example #1:
Dear Ms. Miller,
Thank you for submitting a letter of recommendation to attend (fill in the blank) University on my behalf. I appreciate your support of my academic endeavors.
I have always considered your classes to be valuable and I know that the knowledge I’ve gained will help me as I continue my academic journey. Thanks again.
- Example #2:
Dear Mr. Jones,
Thank you so much for writing a letter of recommendation for me to attend (fill in the blank) University. I’ve been accepted, and I’m sure it was at least in part due to your kind recommendation. I believe (School Name) is a great fit for me and I am really looking forward to starting classes in the Fall.
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you sticking your neck out for me, and will do my best to make you proud!
Again, thank you.
- Example #3:
Dear Dr. Smith,
Thank you for taking the time to write a letter of recommendation on my behalf. I know that recommendation letters take a great deal of time, energy, and effort, and I appreciate your support throughout this process. I will keep you updated on my progress. Thanks again.
