To whom it may concern:

It is my pleasure to write a letter of recommendation for Brandy Dean, a talented researcher who has worked as my research assistant for the past year. Brandy has shown herself to be a dedicated and careful archaeologist, and ranks among the best students I have ever supervised. I recommend her to you very highly.

Brandy has shown an extremely high level of dedication, critical reasoning, and self-motivation throughout the time I have known her. I first became acquainted with her when she took a class of mine related to ancient Roman art. Her thoughtful questions and creative insight in the class made her one of the highest scoring students in the class. When she later asked to become my research assistant, I agreed without hesitation. Brandy recently accompanied me on an excavation in Bolivia. Despite the time difference and unfamiliar climate, Brandy showed intense dedication and was an enormous asset to me on the dig. Upon her return, she immediately set to produce a research publication of excellent quality on her findings. She has a fascination with ancient art and their representations of ancient civilizations, and I believe her curiosity and intelligence makes her a highly qualified candidate for a graduate program in Ancient Art.

In short, I recommend Brandy highly. She is one of the best students I have mentored and is a talented researcher and person as a whole. Brandy is able to work cooperatively with researchers of all ages and experience levels, as well as independently. She is extremely knowledgeable in the field and has already published several papers regarding Diaspora and its effects on artistic materials. I fully expect her to be as excellent and productive as she was in my lab. She will be an asset to your department, and I strongly recommend her without reservation.
