Some may remember that in addition to S, I have gS who is applying this year. He is not your typical cc kid in any way, shape or form. Has been out of hs since June '04. Applying to U New Hampshire only. 3.0 average, 970 SAT. (Will go community college route if UNH doesn't fly). Just learned that UNH doesn't have SATs (they were sent by CBd, but somehow lost; I am on top of that) or recommendation (which his HS GC told me he had sent). Anyway, they instead want a more "current" recomm -eg, from his employer. He works at a grocery store, entry level of course, and has no trouble asking for a rec there. But he asked me what the "guidelines" are to give this person so the rec will be on target (good question gS!).
What would you give as a short-and-sweet guideline to an employer? Something I can email. Thanks!
