To whom it may concern;

After taking the time to enroll in your summer medical program, it was made very clear to me that Harvard has everything I need to thrive and be successful. This University specializes in the field of medical sciences and based on your ranking, I can see the true academic potential this school holds. For the longest of time, I have been interested and determined to work in the medical field. Furthermore, I feel believe that attending Harvard University is the best way to achieve my goal in becoming a medical professional. This school greatly holds my interest and I strongly feel that I qualify to become a student in this campus. I have proven to be able to collaborate effectively with group members. working as a volunteer in several hospitals has not only given me working experience, but also taught me that in the medical work field, being able to communicate properly and efficiently helps to simply get the job done correctly. aside from working skills, I am very dedicated to my studies academically. Although this university may be very rigorous, I feel that I am more than prepared to handle the extremities of the school, as I have been able to endure and succeed in the IB program.

Thank you for your time. Sincerely yours: Angel Ornelas

Letter of Recommendation

Dear Harvard:

It is with my deepest belief that, IB graduate Angel Ornelas, a hardworking, overachieving, student who puts his education above all other things gains admittance to your university. Angel Ornelas is a volunteer in the Sierra Providence hospital and enjoys being around many patients and helping them when they ask upon his assistance, everyone enjoys his presence.

He should be admitted into your university not only because of his hunger for knowledge, but also because of his charismatic personality. Many that I have known throughout the course of 4 years do not have the same determination as Angel Ornelas. He excels in the academic field and in sports, he’s the type of student that all his peers look up too. Angel’s dream has always been to become a Forensics scientist in the medical field and hopes to become part of your prestigious medical program.

There is no doubt in my mind that Angel Ornelas would excell in every possible way if admitted into your school. You shouldn't think twice when deciding to admit Angel into your program.

However, I believe that I should gain admittance to your profound medical program because I am determined to turn Harvard University into the number one school in the Nation. By having your admittance, I would be determined to thrive in your campus and show the rest of the world what your school has taught me.

Harvard is prestigious school to be in and the question lingers “why do I, of all people dese to be accepted into this university?” the answer is simply that i strive for success, I strive to become the best that I can be. Furthermore, by receiving a scholarship and acceptance to your school, I would be more than happy to apply myself to my education. One can only go as far as the amount of knowledge they hold. with this in mind, I would use my really dedicative academic skills to learn as much as possible. Being in your school is a privilege and it would be foolish not to take advantage of the amount of learning one can have there.

I greatly hope that you consider me as one of very few candidates to attend your wonderful house of knowledge, thank you for your time.
